Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me
1943 Duke Ellington, Bob Russell
Recording sessions
1962: New York
Ladies and gentlemen the truly amazing Miss Nina Simone

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

True I've been seen with somebody new what does that mean
That I've been untrue when we're apart
The words in my heart reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothing till you hear it from me
And baby you never will

Do nothing till 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 till 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 somebody new what does that mean
That I've been untrue when we're apart
The words in my heart reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
Please do nothing till you hear it from me
You never will
Oh please do nothing till you hear it from me
You never will
