Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye (1944)
(wm) Cole Porter (I) Musical: Seven Lively Arts by Nan Wynn & Jere McMahon. Recorded by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra (CR) Ella Fitzgerald
Ev’ry time we say goodbye I die a little
Ev’ry time we say goodbye, I wonder why a little
Why the gods above me who must be in the know
Think so little of me, they allow you to go

When you’re near there’s such an air of Spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere begin to sing about it
There’s no love song finer, but how strange the change
From major to minor, ev’ry time we say goodbye

Repeat then tag with:
Ev’ry single time we say goodbye
