I'M PAINTING THE TOWN RED Lyrics

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: The Quintessential - Volume 1

A smile on my face
A song on my lips
Pretending is all I do
I'm painting the town red
To hide a heart that's blue

I'm gay with the crowd
I play with the crowd
But oh, if they only knew
I'm painting the town red
To hide a heart that's blue
Must I go on carrin' on?

My merry song is just pretend
Loving you so, wanting you so
Where will it end, how will it end?

A smile on my face
A song on my lips
But never forgetting you
I'm painting the town red
To hide a heart that's blue
