Testo della canzone He Promised Me 12 Dec 1911 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] Kindly stop that music from playing, Oh Promise Me
Because it makes me sad, so sad
It brings back to my memory
Years and years of misery
Thoughts of one who promised me
A love I thought I had

[chorus:] He promised me that someday he would marry me
He promised me a beautiful home
One down by the sea
He promised that he’d pay
For the wedding day
On the first of May
Then he moved away, and all he left
Were the promises he promised me

[2nd verse:] Sealskins, autos, dresses and diamonds he promised me
And told me that someday he’d pay
My ringless fingers know he’s gone
All my rings he put in pawn
Even took the tickets on
The day he moved away
