Frank Sinatra - "South-To A Warmer Place" lyrics

(A.Wilder, L.McGlohon)

[Recorded July 21, 1981, New York]

I'd be glad to stay right here with you

Fact is, that is what I'd planned to

But from that fool look on your face

I think I'll head South to a warmer place

Thought I'd given you the best of me

I'd be glad to share the rest of me

But there's a chill in your embrace

So, I'd better head South - to a warmer place

Seems like yesterday we could kiss and build a fire
But now it's ten below

Seems like yesterday nights were warm with love's desire

But now it feels like snow

I don't mind a cold day now and then

But this long deep freeze has done me in

And it's too late to plead your case

So I'm goin' South to a warmer place

[instrumental-full chorus]

I don't mind a cold day now and then

But this long deep freeze has done me in

And it's too late to plead your case

So I'd better go South - to a warmer place
