Killing Me Softly lyrics

I heard she sang a good song, I heard she had a style
and so I came to see her and listen for a while.
And there she was this young girl, a stranger to my eyes.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
Singing my life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song,
Killing me softly with her song,
Telling my whole life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song
 
I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt she found my letters and read each one out loud.
I prayed that she would finish but she just kept right on.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
Singing my life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song,
Killing me softly with her song,
Telling my whole life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song
 
She sang as if she knew me in all my dark despair
And then she looked right through me as if I wasn't there.
But she just came to singing, singing clear and strong.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
Singing my life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song,
Killing me softly with her song,
Telling my whole life with her words,
Killing me softly with her song

But Sinatra may have never performed this song...? You should change the video if he has or otherwise this should be merged with the entry on Perry Como's page.

Como was well known for his near identical voice to Sinatra. We also cannot be sure if Sinatra never recorded it as a joke. They were friends, and it wouldn`t be surprising if Sinatra actually sang a song or two on Como`s album and vica versa. Sinatra by the way not once asket Como to fill in some shows when he couldn`t attend. I guess running the song under Sinatra`s name is simply a tribute to these two extraordinary singers and their friendship
