Love Me or Leave Me

Lyrics:Gus Kahn
Music:Walter Donaldson

The song was publishe 1928.

“Love Me or Leave Me” by composer Walter Donaldson
and lyricist Gus Kahn was introduced
in the 1928 Broadway show Whoopee! by Ruth Etting.
She stopped the show with her performance,
and the song became her signature song.
Etting recorded “Love Me or Leave Me” just days after the show opened
in December, and it reached number two on the charts in 1929.
Benny Goodman took the song to the charts twice:
in 1934 for two weeks and again in 1936 in a new version
which rose to number four.
Eddie Cantor, the star of the show introduced “Makin’ Whoopee”
which also became a jazz standard.

Love Me or Leave Me became the title of a 1955 film
about dancer/singer/actress Etting’s life starring Doris Day
whose hit recording revived interest in the song.
The movie was nominated for several Academy Awards,
and Daniel Fuchs and Isobel Lennart won the award for Best Writing,
Movie Picture Story.


Love Me or Leave Me


Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
You won't believe me but I love you only
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else

You might find the night time the right time for kissing
Night time is my time for just reminiscing
Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

There'll be no one unless that someone is you
I intended to be independently blue

I want your love, don't wanna borrow
Have it today to give back tomorrow
Your love is my love
There's no love for nobody else

Say, love me or leave me and let me be lonely
You won't believe me but I love you only
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else

You might find the night time the right time for kissing
Night time is my time for just reminiscing
Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

There'll be no one unless that someone is you
I intended to be independently blue

Say I want your love, don't wanna borrow
Have it today to give back tomorrow
Your love is my love
My love is your love
There's no love for nobody else
