More Than You Know
Thelonious Monk Lyrics

Whether you are here or yonder,
Whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander,
I'm growing fonder of you
Even though your friends forsake you,
Even though you don't succeed
Wouldn't I be glad to take you,
Give you the break you need

More than you know, more than you know
Girl of my heart, I love you so
Lately I find you're on my mind
More than you know

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong
Girl of my heart, I'll string along
You need me so
Much more than you'll ever know (ever know)
Loving you the way that I do

There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But baby I can't live without it
Oh, how I'd cry, oh, how I'd cry
If you got tired and said "Good-bye"

More than I'd show
More than you'd ever know

Sonny was a giant, even back in '54. His solo here is heartfelt, logical and beautifully paced.


I love Tommy Potter's intro to this beautiful classic.All too often,the bass players are overlooked.


I agree. And this track is just one example of the many,many moods that this music can create,because of the humanity and soul contained within. It is timeless.......


So haunting and beautiful. These 2 were a dynamic duo.


1950s jazz is like the soundtrack to a strange, rainy day. idk how to explain it. the saxx sounds great.

Erdman West III

Sonny Rollins, one of the greatest.

Mort Weiss

One of Monks best recorded solos!!!!!

Anand Pandya

Monk is more relaxed and perhaps introspective than in the many recordings of the 1960s.

Bob Aldo

Wow! This is really great - "hits the spot"!

Charles Barry

Monk: the most original voice in jazz. Great combination.
