Just Say I Love Her

We too have said goodbye,
And yet I love her,
I know now that I’ll never want another.
Her smile will haunt me,
And memories will taunt me.
Though others now may know her kiss,
Please won’t you tell her this:
 
Just say I love her
I've loved her from the start
And tell her how I'm yearning
To say what's in my heart
 
Just say I need her
As roses need the rain
And tell her that without her
My dreams are all in vain
 
If you should chance to meet her
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere
Say I was a fool to leave her
Tell her how much a fool can care
 
And if she tells you
She's lonely now and then
Won't you just say I love her
And want her back again
 
Just say I love her,
And want her back again...
 
Thanks!

Submitter's comments:

Sinatra once called Steve Lawrence the best singer he's ever heard.
Hard to disagree.

Can you please provide a proper transcription of this song so that the lyrics match what’s being sung? The beginning verses are missing and the ending is different.

What made you think it was a transcription? I just found it on the Net in one of a thousand places it is featured. And the song is as much of a staple as can be, It's what they call a standard. I love Steve Lawrence so much, that I was totally concentrated on finding a good quality youtube recording of his and missed the incompleteness of the lyrics. My bad

I personally wouldn’t even dream of copying and pasting a song from another site, pair it with a video and posting it on lyricstranslate without ensuring that the lyrics are complete and are matched to what is sung in the video. Regular smile
Thanks to all involved for the missing lyrics.

That's what makes life interesting, Michael. We all have different dreams...And I admitted that it was my mistake. You still have a need
to wag your finger at me? Something is telling me that you won't be a good source for my Italian needs. Please, forget that I asked you.

Believe me no finger wagging was intended. Since you are considerably new to this site I was merely trying to point out, for future considerations, that simply copying and pasting is not the best way to make good quality contributions.

Igor, just from the experience, Michael is a really good source. I don’t know what’s in the air, but it seems there’s too much strife all over. I say we introduce a new rule that would require all exchanges to be humorous. Yes, and a medal for it...❣️

Thank you,dear. I knew that I can count on you.

> And, if you don’t mind:
Jimmy Dale / Jack Val / Sam Ward / Martin Kalmanoff -
based on the Italian song "Dicitencello Vuje" by Rodolfo Falvo & Enzo Fusco

I do mind. Why those four and not Sinatra, Eddie Fisher, Cliff Richard and many others.
Some things do not need introductions. It's like in some German corporations the top dogs
don't have titles on their business cards - just the names - because everybody is supposed to know
who they are - I like the idea.

Most of the more known singers that covered the song were added.
Jimmy Dale, Jack Val are the arrangers while Sam Ward, Martin Kalmanoff are the writers for the English version.
Couldn’t find any evidence that Frank Sinatra ever recorded it.

> Couldn’t find any evidence that Frank Sinatra ever recorded it.
I could have been wrong, for some reason I was under that impression.
It would be weird if Frank never did it. I thought he did everything.
And his voice was big enough for the song, - not as big as that of Steve Lawrence though.
And they sounded eerily similar.
I have over 600 songs by Sinatra on my hard drive and will go through those but now I tend to think that you're right.
Thanks again for noticing and for completing the page.
