By The Way
Barbra Streisand Lyrics


By the way did I hear you say
If some night I seem too lonely
You would stay
Oh and by the way
Have I told you yet that only recently
He moved out on me
Took the towels we stole
From some motel in tennessee
He was gone long before he really left
I knew it ...
By the way he began to say:
Love takes time, I'm in a hurry
Anyway that's all yesterday
Let's get back to us
Why worry?
If you try calling by and by
Oh, and by the I thought I mention
You can't stay...
Neath the lights
You don't look a thing like he did
And it's time to play
It's another day
Why can't we make love fall
By the way?

By the way, did I hear you say?
If some night, I seem too lonely
You would stay, oh and by the way
Have I told you yet that only recently
He moved out on me........
Took the towels we stole
From some motel in Tennessee..........
He was gone long before he really left
I knew it.........
By the way, he began to say
Love takes time, I'm in a hurry
Anyway, that's all yesterday
Let's get back to us
Why worry if you try
Calling forever........
Oh, and by the way I thought I mentioned
You can stay...........
Neath the lights
You don't look a thing like he did
And it's time to play
It's another day
Why can't we make love
Fall, by the way?

pro tip: watch movies at Flixzone. Me and my gf have been using them for watching lots of of movies these days.

A haunting song, beautifully sung by Ms. Streisand.  It not only showcases her voice but also reminds us all of some aspect of a lost love.  Thanks for this post.  I love this song--certainly not a traditional, big orchestra; certainly not a typical singer.  She is incredible.

So sad she never sang this beauty live!

Alexandre Dos Santos

treg1980 well, she did sang it live last year!! Finally!

necktieguy

I like the use of the repetitive phrase "by the way" in multiple meanings.  Good song wring technique and carried off brilliantly by Ms. Streisand.

Emotive and Evocative.... only Barbra could sing this with so much feeling...
One of many fine moments on Lazy Afternoon.

Susan Griffin

There is a deep longing in her voice for her former lover. The words she uses, "Let's get back to us, why worry if he'll try calling by and by". exquisitely portrays the fact that she's not over someone.

Susan Griffin

I used to listen to this lovely song many years ago, when I was a teenager. The word play in it is just superb. Her voice is simply flawless..
