“Night and Day”   Billie Holiday

“Night and Day” is a popular song by Cole Porter.  It was written for the 1932 musical play Gay Divorce.  It is perhaps Porter’s most popular contribution to the Great American Songbook.

lyrics ~

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me, or far
It’s no matter darling where you are
I think of you
Night and day, day and night, why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go

In the roaring traffic’s boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you night and day

Night and day
Under the hide of me
There’s an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And its torment won’t be through
‘Til you let me spend my life making love to you
Night and day,  day and night
