Do Nothing till You Hear from Me

1940 – Duke Ellington / Bob Russell

Do nothing ’til 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 ’til you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the word of others you’ve heard
I haven’t a chance

True, I’ve been seen with someone new
But that does that mean, that I’ve been untrue?
While we’re apart, all the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memories
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothing ’til you hear it from me
And you never will
