Linda Lyrics

Artist: Ray Noble

Ray Noble with Buddy Clark

When I go to sleep
I never count sheep,
I count all the charms about Linda.

And lately it seems
in all of my dreams,
I walk with my arms about Linda.

But what good does it do me for Linda
doesn't know that I exist?
Can't help feeling gloomy,
think of all the lovin' I've missed.

We pass on the street,
my heart skips a beat,
I say to myself, "Hello, Linda."

If only she'd smile,
I'd stop for a while
and then I would get to know Linda.

But miracles still happen
and when my lucky star begins to shine,
with one lucky break,
I'll make Linda mine.

I just loved this song sung by Perry Como, but I can't find the song on any of Como's cd's.

I am so old that, when I was a child, we bought a "Lyric" magazine that contained all the words to current hits. Do you know the name of this publication? Bet if I still had it - would be worth a lot !

Saw/heard this song sung by Dick Dale on the Lawrence Welk show a few years back (when it was in syndication). Always wanted to know the lyrics since I was a kid, but the tune was very familiar. Thanks for having the lyrics up for me to finally sing to!

My parents named me after this very popular song. She used to sing it to me as a lullaby.

Is ring tone free of charge? If it isn't, what does it cost. Please do not send until I approve.

My mom sang this song to me all the time she has a great voice. I can still hear her singing this song when I was younger in my head Now I'm fifty!!!!

Thanks for the publication of a great classic.

since 1946, or when it was that I first heard it, whenever I hear Buddy Clark start the song, it's a sing-a-long for me. I'm right with him on the words.

Where can I get a lead sheet for this song?

Who was the girl on th record with cllark.

I was named after this song. Every time I meet someone named Linda, I know their approximate age. There aren't any young ladies with this name.

by Yet Another Linda on 6/8/2012 4:16pm
These are the correct lyrics for the song I remember. There was another song called "Linda" from a movie released about the same time, apparently. Don't know which song Como recorded.
by Bill Giordano on 8/2/2012 4:43pm
These are the right lyrics. I remember my Dad singing it when I was in 2nd grade and had a friend named Linda.
Jan and Dean recorded it too but did it as L-l-l-linda, same lyrics with the stutter.

The magazine Judy refers to is most likely "Hit Parader" which was published by Charlton Publications in Cheshire CT, best known for reprinting the original long underwear super-heroes that became the templates for Watchmen.
by Gayle on 9/15/2012 3:45pm
When I was little, my uncle sang this song to my cousin, Lynda and I was jealous because there wasn't a song called "Gayle".
by Linda on 2/15/2013 6:14pm
I was named after this song... It was my fathers favorite in 1959

At the baseball game last night, the lady sitting next to me said her name was Linda; and it immediately
started the lyrics running through my mind. I asked if she was old enough to know any of the popular romantic music of the late 40's.
when she said no, I sang it for her; which really pleased her to know of it.

How can so many people be so dumb?
The words to a single song is called the LYRIC, not lyrics.
The word lyrics is plural, and should only be used when referring
to more than one song.

not lyrics.
by Linda (what else?) on 7/23/2014 8:07pm
My mother used to sing this song to me over and over again when I was little. I thought she made it up until she confessed one day she did not. I was named after actress Linda Darnell but was born about the same time this song did in June, 1947.
by Linda on 9/14/2014 7:06am
So happy to find the words to this song! My dad used to sing it to me when his mind was still good before he passed. Now my 93-year old client sings it to me, but couldn't remember all the words. Thank you!
by Linda on 3/28/2015 11:39am
I was named after the song also. A Linda friend of mine the same age was named after Linda Darnell. I heard Bing Crosby sing it in a movie a long time ago but cannot remember the name of the movie.
by Linda Marie on 5/25/2015 5:30pm
This too was my father's favorite song. I was told he always said when he had a girl her name would be Linda. That's how I got my name. It is a wonderful memory of having my dad singing this song to me.
by Linda N. in Cedar Rapids, IA. on 6/17/2015 9:13pm
I'm also thrilled to get the words to My Song. When I was born, my mother said that Linda was the no. 1 name for girls.
So, that's how I got my name and she said it meant beautiful. Looking it up, it is Spanish for beautiful.
by Linda - also named after the song on 6/18/2015 12:54pm
As for Thomas L. Fenton - if he is still alive - he should get a life! I am glad I have more important things and people in my life to keep me happy and occupied. No time for such nonsense.
by Linda Lee on 12/31/2015 7:12am
I was born in 1947 and remember mom singing this to me. I remembered most of the words. Will now memorize what I forgot. I thought when I was 3 that they wrote it just for me.
by Linda on 7/26/2016 12:34pm
I was born in 1955 and was named by my Dad after this song.
by Lou Blazquez on 3/19/2017 9:39am
I just heard about "Linda" on XM radio. It was written in 1946 by Jack Lawrence, and published in 1946. It was written for his attorney's (Lee Eastmen) year old daughter Linda. It was sung by Ray Noble in 1946 and reached number 1. You may have heard the version by Jan and Dean. Linda Eastmen grew up and married Paul McCartney. Later, McCartney bought the song and its rights.
by Linda on 5/20/2017 6:02pm
My Mom was expecting in 1947. She didn't know she was having twins and that song came on the radio. My sister name was pick and that how I got my name.
by Linda K. on 6/3/2017 10:50pm
I was born in January of 1950 and named Linda, partly for this popular song, but also for my maternal grandmother whose name was "Olinda." My Dad would always sing the song to me using these words. I can never remember a class from kindergarten to 12th grade that didn't have at least three other girls named "Linda" in them. It got to be very confusing so the teachers would differentiate us by using the first initial of our last names. This song always reminds me of my dad who died on my eighteenth birthday.
by Linda Lee P. on 10/26/2017 11:25pm
I, too, was named after Linda Darnell. 1947. I remember hearing this song, of course, but appreciate having the lyrics now, thank you. And I appreciate Lou Blazquez giving some history to the song.
