I'll Be Around

Lyrics ,Music:Alec Wilder

The song was publishe 1942.

In his book Alec Wilder in Spite of Himself: A Life of the Composer
author Desmond Stone tells the story of the origin of “I’ll Be Around.”
The composer/lyricist Alec Wilder said that the title
“literally popped out of nowhere” into his head as he was riding in a taxi
and he wrote it down on an envelope.
“‘Quite by accident I spotted it as I was crumpling up
the envelope some days later,’ he recalled.
‘Since I was near a piano, I wrote a tune,
using the title as the first phrase of the melody.
I remember it only took about 20 minutes.
The lyric took much longer to write.
God bless Frank Sinatra for singing the definitive version of this song.’”

“I’ll Be Around” was a modest hit for the Glenn Miller Orchestra
with vocalist Johnny Desmond and the Modernaires.
Others who recorded it include Cab Calloway and His Orchestra,
Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Bob Brookmeyer, Joe Pass on solo guitar,
and pianist McCoy Tyner.
In the ‘90s it was recorded by vocalists Jimmy Scott, Carol Sloane
and Mel Torme, saxophonists Gerry Mulligan and David Sanchez,
and pianist Bill Charlap.
Since 2000 it has been recorded by saxophonists Phil Woods
and Eric Alexander, pianists Eddie Higgins and Randy Porter,
and vocalists Rebecca Kilgore and Tierney Sutton.



I'll be around,
No matter how
You treat me now
I'll be around from now on.

Your latest love
Can never last,
And when its past,
I'll be around when he's gone

Good-bye again,
And if you find a love like mine
Just now and then,
Oh drop a line to say you `re feeling fine

And when things go wrong
Perhaps you'll see
You're meant for me
So I'll be around when he's gone.

Good-bye again,
And if you find a love like mine
Just now and then,
Oh drop a line to say your feeling fine

And when things go wrong
Perhaps you'll see
You're meant for me
So I'll be around when he's gone.
