“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Without a song - that's where I was before I heard Frank Sinatra sing this on the radio!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVpvgbgKifQ - Without a Song - Frank Sinatra
|"Without a Song" is a
song with music by
Vincent Youmans and lyrics by
Billy Rose and
Edward Eliscu, published in 1929. It was included in the
musical play, Great Day.
... Lawrence Tibbett, Nelson Eddy and Frank Sinatra recorded versions of the song with what appears to be the original lyrics, including the line, "A darkie's born, but he's no good no how, without a song." In subsequent recordings, Sinatra didn't use the term "darkie", and later recorded versions included the altered text "a man is born, but he's no good no how, without a song..."
