(from the CD Sinatra Swings)
Please don’t talk about me when I’m gone
Though our friendship ceases from now on,
If you can’t say anything real nice.
Please don’t talk about me’s my advice.
We’re parting, you go your way, I go mine
It’s best that we do.
Here’s a kiss, I hope this brings lots of luck to you.
Makes no difference how I carry on
So please don’t talk about me when I’m gone.
