I Don't Know
Ruth Brown Lyrics


Why do robins sing in December
Long before the Springtime is due?
And even though it's snowing, violets are growing
I know why and so do you
Why do breezes sigh every evening whispering your name as they do?
And why have I the feeling stars are on my ceiling?
I know why and so do you
When you smile at me I hear gypsy violins
When you dance with me, I'm in heaven when the music begins
I can see the sun when it's raining, hiding every cloud from my view
And why do I see rainbows when you're in my arms?
I know why and so do you

Why do robins sing in December
Long before the springtime is due?
And even though it's snowing, violets are growing
I know why and so do you
Why do breezes sigh every evening whispering your name as they do?
And why have I the feeling stars are on my ceiling?
I know why and so do you
When you smile at me I hear gypsy violins
When you dance with me, I'm in heaven when the music begins
I can see the sun when it's raining, hiding every cloud from my view
And why do I see rainbows when you're in my arms?
I know why and so do you

Oh my! This one's definitely going on the "sexy" playlist! What an amazing singer, I wish I'd known about her sooner

Lazy I Ranch

@Jennifer Jackson thanks for the suggestion, I'm going to do that! I only discovered her music about a year ago. I don't know why she's mostly forgotten nowadays, she was a star in her day! Atlantic Records became known as the "house that Ruth built" because of her.
"I Don't Know" is one of the best songs I've ever heard, still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it!

Hey type in Ruth Brown station on your pandora list if you have it and you will get all the goodies from that era. I’ve been HOOKED ever since I’ve done it.

Ruth Brown, one if not one of the first to sell hit selling records on Atlantic Records and kept it that way until the early 60s. Atlantic was known as "the house that Ruth(Brown) built".
