I Won't Be Back Tonight    (1952)

I won't be back tonight or ever
When I leave this time it's from now on
You think that you are cute and mighty clever
I hope my leaving knocked you off your throne

You cast your spell on me, you used me for a clown
You talked behind my back to everyone in town
I won't be back tonight or ever
When I leave this time it's from now on

I won't be back tonight that's for certain
No need to leave the lightstrings out for me
I'm not sure that I will be happy
But there's one thing I do know: I'll be free

My time will be my time to do as I please
There won't be those silly fights, my heart will be at ease
I won't be back tonight or ever
When I leave this time it's from now on
