My Little Brown Book
Duke Ellington Lyrics


""My little brown book With the silver binding How it keeps reminding me Of a memory That's haunting me. In some quiet nook I go thru its pages And peruse this ageless tale Of a love that failed To ever become true. On this page is the date Of that fateful night at eight When I found you were no longer in love. After that there's nothing more Just a dark and futile door That shuts out the stars above. In my little book I inscribed your heart vow But since we're apart now This and that last sweet kiss Is all that's left of you Is all that's left of you.""

Why the other person in every good memory has to be dead?

Christopher Swider

How lucky you were. You had this great love, and sadly, some never do.

Mr. Jones...how cool for you to share your love and admiration for your dad with the rest of us out here in the YouTube-verse...he was a special drummer and he contributed so much to the world of jazz. God bless!

James Perry

Your dad was a great musician who encouraged me to be a better drummer as well as a better person.
