Hush now, don’t explain
Just say you’ll remain
I’m glad your back, don’t explain
Quiet, don’t explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don’t explain
You know that I love you
And that love endures
All my thoughts are of you
For I’m so completely yours
Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don’t matter
When you’re with me, sweet
Hush now, don’t explain
You’re my joy and pain
My life’s yours love
Don’t explain Billie Holiday / Arthur Herzog Jr.
