Don’t Explain

(Arthur Herzog / Billie Holiday)

Hush, now
Don’t explain
I know you raise cane
Skip that lipstick
Don’t explain
Quiet, don’t explain
You’re my joy and pain
I’m glad you’re back
Don’t explain
You know that I love you
And what love endures
All my thoughts are of you
I’m so completely yours
Try to hear folks chatter
And they say you cheat
Right or wrong, don’t matter
When I’m with you, sweet
Quiet, don’t explain
What is there to gain?
My life’s yours, love
Don’t explain
