To Each His Own
Eddy Howard Lyrics


A rose must remain with the sun and the rain
Or its lovely promise won't come true
To each his own, to each his own
And my own is you

What good is a song if the words just don't belong?
And a dream must be a dream for two
No good alone, to each his own
For me there's you

[Chorus]
If a flame is to grow there must be a glow
To open each door there's a key
I need you, I know, I can't let you go
Your touch means too much to me

Two lips must insist on two more to be kissed
Or they'll never know what love can do
To each his own, I've found my own
One and only you

[Chorus]

Two lips must insist on two more to be kissed
Or they'll never know what love can do
To each his own, I've found my own
One and only you

I have the vocal track for the Ink Spots version and two or more times a week enjoy singing Bill Kinney's tenor lead vocal. Songs of that era, so much better (and singable) than today's junk.

This was a pop song. Hear it and weep for today.

Elliot's Oldies

It's amazing to think of the quality and effort that went into a hit record back then. And that quality like that was expected from the record-buying public.

My dear Aunt Adele used to sing this beautiful song to me. I was born in 1937. I still know the words and love the song.

Had this lovely song been written for the movie of the same name for which Olivia DeHavilland won an Oscar, both the movie and the song would be better known today.

My Mom used to sing this song while she did housework. I was very young, but I rembember. Beautiful song!

Miguel Osvaldo Flores Dominguez

Memorable track!

Alyssa Beth

The year my dear father was born 1946. Without him I wouldn't be. This song is as beautiful today as it was then. Truly in Feb 2022 on this day I wish music like this could still be made.
