Just Between You and Me
The Chordettes Lyrics


Sitting in the sand
We were holding hands.
You whispered I love you
Just between you and me

Everyone had gone
We stayed on and on
Vowing to be lovers
Just between you and me
I won't tell my mother
I won't tell my brother
They don't think that we're of age
No congratulations, until graduation
Then we'll turn life's page

'Til we tell the world
We will both agree
It's our little secret
Just between you and me

Just between you and me
Just between you and me
Just between you and me

'Til we tell the world

It's our little secret
Just between you and me

Just between you and me
Just between you and me
Just between you and me

Hearing this makes me feel like I'm living in the 1950s--back when people had more respect and knew how to behave.  Bring the 1950s back!

Emanating Faucet

@Michael Webb The 50's may have been a fancy, Somewhat peaceful time. But that doesn't mean it was all Nice & pleasant for the most, people that were below Working or upper class. It was Lovely when there were Bright minds & Respect just like any Point/s in time can be.
The Streets, Hoodlife & Crime have always been around. They're inevitable in such a poorly controlled, biased, Socially disconnected Society that values materialism & profits over Trust & our Oceans & the Ecosystem.
It's about what you do with those environments, How they're portrayed to people who don't Live in it & what Vibrations & Positive or proactive messages you choose to spread.


Remember;... In this World, you only see, what some others want you to see. Though I totally agree with what your saying I don't believe it's always the Decade that makes a Time feel the way it is but the mindset & Spirit that you approach & look at it wid.
Enjoy good music.

This song is what being a kid in the 50s was all about
I was fortunate to be that kid...
I remember quite vividly their other hit....Zorro
All the kids would sing that song in our neighborhood

Lynn Evans Mand, the lead singer of the vocal harmony group the Chordettes, passed away on February 6th, 2020 at the age of 95...
She joined the group in 1952 when their lead singer could not make a show in Mand’s hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. She was asked to step in and was invited to join the group. After the Chordettes disbanded in the 1960s, Mand moved to Long Island and became a special education teacher...
Between 1954 and 1961 the quartet had thirteen records on the Top 100 chart, four made the Top 10 with one reaching #1, "Mr. Sandman", for 2 weeks on Billboard's Best Sellers in Stores, Most Played by Jockeys, and Most Played on Juke Boxes charts...

I remember sitting in the car waiting for the light to change In 1957 listening to WMCA Radio - In Brooklyn NY - I was 16 years old - when. “Just Between You And Me”. By The Chordettes came on the radio - I liked it right away and the next day I went and bought it - and I played it a dozen times and I am still playing “ Just Between You And Me”. Just a great song - a song about Love and simpler times. - Thanks Chordettes - Love is still the best

Correction- 1957 Was The “Break Out Year” For Rock N Roll - I mention “Russ Tamblin” ( Rainbow ) It was “Russ Hamilton” ( Rainbow ) Also add to the List - Sam Cooke ( You Send Me ) Lee Andrew and The Hearts ( Teardrops ) The Rays ( Silhouettes ) Oh Yeah - 1957 WAS the “Break Out” Year for “Rock N Roll”. There are more artist I am sure and I could find 2 or 3 more artist that “ Break Out “ in 1957. I would like to get a job in an “Oldies” Radio Station - Rock N Roll - is Forever
