Duke Ellington – Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me lyrics

Someone told someone and someone told you
But they wouldn't hurt you, not much,
Since every one spreads the story
With his own little personal touch.
Do nothing till you hear from me
Pay no attention to what's said
Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
Is over my head.
Do nothing till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the word of others you've heard
I haven't a change
True I've been seen with someone new
But does that mean that I'm untrue?
When we're a part the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you.
Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothing till you hear from me
And you never will.
