LET'S LIVE A LITTLE
(Ruth E. Coletharp)
CHARLIE FEATHERS (NORTON 45-023, 1991)

Take your little lips and kiss me
Take your little arms and thrill me
Let's live a little, before we say goodbye
I've drawn my money out off the bank
Buy your roses and pretty things
Let's live a little, before we say goodbye

The band will be playing a waltz just for two
I will be saying, darling I love you
We pretend we're happy, though we know it's a lie
Let's live a little, before we say goodbye

The band gonna be playing a waltz just for two
Well, I will be saying, darling I love you
Oh, let's pretend we're happy
Though we know it's a lie
Let's live a little now, before we say goodbye
I said now, let's live a little
Before we say goodbye
