They Can't Take That Away From Me
Billie Holiday Lyrics


The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, no they can't take that away from me
We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
Still I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, no, they can't take that away from me

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, no they can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love
Still I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, no, they can't take that away from me

No, they can't
Take that away from me

The way you dress in all green,
The way you walk to your seat,
The memory of all that,
No no, they can’t take that away from me,

The way your smile just beams,
The way you sing off key,
The way you haunt my dreams,
No no, they can’t take that away from me,

You may never ever know those little things,
When we just turned 17,
Still I’ll always, always keep the memory of,

The way you crying on the phone,
The way you fall asleep,
The way we survived this romance,
No no, they can’t take that away from me,

The way you changed my life,
The way you saved a wretched me,
The way we danced till three,
No no, they can’t take that away from me,
No, they can’t take that away from me.

If someone could please reply to my comment and explain to me why Billie's song was featured in Strung Out's Analog?

Sam Olsen

Because Jason Cruz, that’s why.

C Flow

Her interpretation was awesome. One of a kind Billie Holiday...aka Lady Day....aka Eleanora Fagan.

God this music makes me feel like I'm home in home I've never known but always longed for. Man I remember being addicted to Billies music to the point of playing nothing but Lady Day all day every day lol. Postscript: I'm the 75th comment!😁😄👍🤙

Tony Davis

Thanks so much. Just a little historical note - the lyric to the bridge was written by Ira Gershwin as "THE bumpy road to love" (which is what Holiday sings here), but Sinatra changed it to "THAT" which irked Gershwin because it changed the meaning. But ever since the error has shown up in subsequent renditions (and in online lyrics).

Sorry, I am 65. However I stil keep on dancing. Perhaps we might try it.
