Jones, Quincy - Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me Lyrics




Do nothin' till you hear from me
Pay no attention to what's said
Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream is over my head

Do nothin' till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the word of others you've heard
Don't you know, I haven't a chance

True I've been seen with somebody new
But does that mean that I'm been untrue?
When we're apart the words in my heart reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And others arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothin' till you hear from me
And baby you never will

    Be sure to Google the You Tube of Nancy Wilson serenading Quincy Jones in a live television celebration of his work. She stops the show in her classic Nancy Wilson rendition of this Ellington gem.

  5. Jason Voorhees

    This song when played when my grandmother’s parents started going out in high school in the late 40’s or 50’s probably early 50’s

    My favorite version of this amazing song! Quincy Jones took that orchestral arrangement to the next level and layered it with Phil Collin's smooth vocals and BAM! Album of the year baby!

  12. Geraldo Barbosa

    Best version. Great Work....Phill Collins & Quincy Jones!

  17. Bikash Rana

    Do nothin' till you hear from me
    Pay no attention to what's said
    Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream is over my head

    Do nothin' till you hear from me
    At least consider our romance
    If you should take the word of others you've heard
    I haven't got a chance

    True I've been seen with someone new
    But does that mean that I've been untrue?
    When we're apart the words in my heart they reveal how I feel about you

    Some kiss may cloud my memory
    And others arms may hold a thrill
    But please do nothin' till you hear it from me
    And you never will

    Chris Dragotta

    Bikash Rana So basically, he wants to keep screwing around, but he wants to keep screwing her too.

  18. Damani Scott

    They should have done a full album together.

    Tara Walton

    Damani Scott I AGREE.

    Carlton Smith

    Damani Scott That would have been a great project. It’s still not too late.

    Landi Schorsch

    A studio album collaboration between QJ and PC was something I've often dreamed of. And even MJ and PC would have fit together vocally what you can hear on the mashup "Billie Jean/Easy Lover". By the way, there is a DVD of The PC Big Band conducted by QJ in 1996 during the Montreux Jazz Festival while playing some songs from PC's career (including this song). It's called "Live At Montreux".

  19. Jazziz Café

    Wow! Love this song! Thanks for share it! Mi versión favorita de "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me" es esta que hicieron juntos Phil Collins y Quincy Jones para el álbum "Q's Jook Joint" de 1995, con arreglos de Q y Sam Nestico tiene a Joshua Redman y Jerry Hey en los solos de saxo y trompeta. Un álbum estupendo en el que podíamos disfrutar, además, de las colaboraciones de Barry White, Ray Charles, Toots Thielemans o Warren Wiebe por citar solo a los ya fallecidos. #SmoothVocals.
