Without A Song

Lyrics:Billy Rose ,Edward Eliscu
Music:Vincent Youmans

The song was publishe 1929.

It was included in the musical play, Great Day.

Earliest recording of the song(?) Paul Whiteman's
orchestra featuring Bing Crosby in 1929.
"Without a Song" was recorded twice by Perry Como:
the first time on January 11, 1951
and the second time in June 1970 at a live performance
at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 1951 recording was issued as a 78 rpm single in the United States
by RCA Victor Records (catalog number 20-4033)
and in the United Kingdom by HMV (catalog number B-10093).
It was also included in a 1957 album, Dream Along With Me
(RCA Camden catalog number CAL-403).
The 1970 recording was issued on albums by RCA
and its United Kingdom, Netherlands,
and Japan subsidiaries, but not as a single.

Lawrence Tibbett, Nelson Eddy and Frank Sinatra recorded versions
of the song with what appears to be the original lyrics,
including the line, "A darkie's born, but he's no good no how, without a song."
In subsequent recordings, Sinatra didn't use the term "darkie",
and later recorded versions included the altered text "a man is born,
but he's no good no how, without a song."

Without a song the day would never end
Without a song the road would never bend
When things go wrong a man ain't got a friend
Without a song

That field of corn would never see a plow
That field of corn would be deserted now
A man is born but he's no good no-how
Without a song

I got my trouble and woe
But sure as I know,
The Jordan will roll
And I'll get along as long as a song is strong in my soul

I'll never know what makes the rain to fall
I'll never know what makes that grass so tall
I only know there ain't no love at all
Without a song!
