We Just Couldn’t Say Goodbye (1932)
(wm) Harry Woods. (P) Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra (P) Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians. (CR) The Andrews Sisters.
We thought that love was over that we were really through,
I said I didn’t love him that we’d begin anew
And you can all believe me, we sure intended to
But we just couldn’t say goodbye

The chair and then the sofa. they broke right down and cried,
The curtain started waving for me to come inside
I tell you confident’a’lly the tears were hard to hide
And we just couldn’t say goodbye

The clock was striking twelve o’clock, it smiled on us below,
With folded hands, it seemed to say “We’ll miss you if you go”

So I went back and kissed him and when I looked around,
The room was singing love songs and dancing up and down.
Now we’re both so happy because at last we’ve found
That we just couldn’t say goodbye.
