Billie Holiday - "Night Day" lyrics

Cole porter

Like the beat, beat, beat of the tomtom

When the jungle shadows fall

Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock

As it stands against the wall

Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops

When the summer showr is through

So a voice within me keeps repeating

You, you, you

Night and day you are the one

Only you beneath the moon and sun

Whether near me or far

Its no matter, darling, where you are

I think of you

Night and day

Day and night

Why is it so

That this longing for you follows wherever I go

In the roaring traffics boom

In the silence of my lonely room

I think of you

Night and day

Night and day under the hide of me

Theres an oh, such a hungry yearning

Burning inside of me

And its torment wont be trough

till you spent my life making love to you

Day and night

Night and day

Night and day
