don’t explain lyrics – billie holiday

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 what endures
all my thoughts 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
