Lyric Description: In this rueful lyric, the narrator shares a lesson learned after an unrequited love affair: love is all too frequently complicated with deception on both sides of the equation.
No-vocal versions: Both the complete ballad and bossa recordings are also available without the vocal track, in MP3 format, so you can have your chance to express the song with the rhythm section. Each version begins with a two-measure set up by the rhythm section and go through the head just one time.
If another key would be better for you, send the key you'd like to Don and we'll post the transposition on the website for purchase. If you're not sure which key is best, send us your range and we'll work with you to figure out the best key.
This lead sheet is also found in our Sing JAZZ! songbook, a collection of stunning, lesser-known vocal selections from the Second Floor Music repertoire (Sing JAZZ! contents).
