Don't Explain

Lyrics:Arthur Herzog Jr.
Music:Billie Holiday

The song was publishe 1944.

“Don’t Explain” was written by jazz singer Billie Holiday
and songwriter Arthur Herzog, Jr. who also collaborated
with her on “God Bless the Child” and “Somebody’s on My Mind.”
The lyric is purported to have been inspired by a real life incident.
Holiday married Jimmy Monroe in 1941,
and one night he came home with lipstick on his collar.
When he started to defend himself, Billie cut him off.
Either she accepted his infidelity and didn’t want him to leave her or,
according to some accounts, their marriage was unofficially
ended at the time.
According to her own recollections,
the phrase “don’t explain” kept running through her head,
and one night she sat down with Herzog and together they finished the song.


Hush now, don't explain
Just say you'll remain
I'm glad your back, don't explain

Quiet, don't explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And that love endures
All my thoughts are of you
For I'm so completely yours

Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my joy and pain
My life's yours love
Don't explain
