Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Don't Be That Way

Lyrics:Mitchell Parish
Music:Benny Goodman ,Edgar Sampson

The song was publishe 1938.

Goodman and the members of his group were fans of Webb’s band.
Drummer Gene Krupa was especially impressed
and influenced by Chick’s playing.
On a momentous Tuesday evening, May 11, 1937,
the two bands met up for a “Battle of the Bands” at the Savoy Ballroom,
Webb’s home turf.
For five hours the ensembles traded musical volleys,
but as one of the 4,000 patrons later stated,
when “Chick gave them the first beat of the bass drum,
the crowd went absolutely mad and screamed their applause.”
Even Gene Krupa conceded “He just cut me to ribbons.
When he really let go, you had a feeling that the entire atmosphere
in the place was being charged.”

Vocalist Mildred Bailey was the first to take on the challenge of singing
Sampson’s melody, fitted with lyrics by master craftsman Mitchell Parish.
The song begins with the exclamation “Don’t Cry,
oh honey please don’t be that way,”
and then goes on to describe why these tears are like a rainy day,
and hopefully things will look up because “tomorrow is another day.”




April skies are in your eyes
But, darling, don't be blue

Don't cry
Oh, honey, please
Don't be that way

Clouds in the sky
Should never make you feel that way

The rain
Will bring the violets of May
Tears are in vain so, honey, please, don't be that way

As long as we
See it through
You'll have me
I'll have you

Sweetheart
Tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart
Oh, honey, please, don't be that way

Don't cry
Oh, honey, please
Don't be that way

Clouds in the skies
Should never make you feel that way

The rain
Will bring the violets of May
Tears in vain
So, honey, please, don't be that way

As long as we
Will see it through
You'll have me
And I'll have you

Sweetheart
Tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart
Oh, honey, please don't be that way

Don't cry
Don't cry, don't cry
Oh, honey, please, don't be that way
Oh, honey, please, don't be that way
Clouds in the sky
Dig those crazy sky
Should never make you feel that way
So don't be that way
Dig the rain
Pitter, pitter, pitter, pitter-patter
Bring the violets of may
Pitter-patter of rain drops
Tears in vain
Tears, tears
So, honey, please don't be that way
Don't be that way

As long as we
Will see it through
Oh, baby, you'll have me
And I'll have you
Sweetheart

Tomorrow is another day
Tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart

Oh, honey, please, don't be that way
Looky here, baby, don't cry
Oh, honey, please, don't be that way
Clouds in the sky

Should never make you feel that way
Yeah, don't cry
Honey, please, don't be that way

Clouds in the sky
Oh, honey, please, don't be that way
No, I'll never be that way
