It Only Hurts for a Little While
The Ames Brothers Lyrics


It only hurts for a little while
That's what they tell me
That's what they say
It only hurts for a little while
Then all your heartaches will pass away
It's so easy to be smart
With somebody else's heart
But I don't know how to start forgetting you
What can I do
It only hurts for a little while
That's what they tell me
Just wait and see
But I will hurt till you come back to me

It's so easy to be smart
With somebody else's heart
But I don't know how to start forgetting you
What can I do
It only hurts for a little while
That's what they tell me
Just wait and see
But I will hurt till you come back to me

Not necessarily,
but it does make it
easier. To prove
my point, no greater or more glorious
harmonies are
produced than by
large orchestral
choirs, and I
daresay in most
instances there is
nary a sibling
among the members.



Milton Moore

Ed Ames, aged 90,
and Tony Bennett,
aged 91, are the two longest-lived
iconic male pop vocalists as of
June, 2018. Next
down the list is Pat Boone, aged 84. Then Johnny Mathis and Steve
Lawrence, aged 82. And finally, Jack Jones, aged
80.
Who will be the last man standing
from this select
group? And how many people are
still around who
would even care?
God bless them all!
As for the song itself?
BEAUTIFUL BEYOND WORDS!

I used to listen to this song was I was 11 and my grandfather passed away.

There are a number of wonderful singing groups, but the Ames Brothers are the best. Born as the Urick brothers, to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, they had numerous hits in the 1950s. They were 4 of a family of 11 children, 9 of whom survived childhood. Joe the oldest turned down a chance to sing with the Metropolitan Opera, and Ed the youngest and only surviving brother went on to a great solo career that included Broadway. Ed still sings and sounded great in a PBS special in 2007.

I'd love to hear an Ames Brothers tribute band so these lovely songs do not fade from memory.

May favorite all-time Ames brothers song.

Bobby Wason

I loved listening to this song with my grandmother "Dada." The Ames brothers were one if her favorite artist of the 50's era. This, as well as other Ames Brother tunes, brought back many memories of being with "Dada."

Milton Moore

God's angels themselves were listening in as this immortal recording was being made!

Butch CHISM

Harmony like this can only come from siblings.

Brandon Truszkowski

Very true! The Mills Brothers are another example of this. It was the four brothers and then the three brothers and their father.
