01/23/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Till We Meet Again

Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

- William Shakespeare,
Romeo And Juliet Act 2, scene 2, 176–185

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   My mama             the late Maxine Frix Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25), used to sing this song from her own childhood to me as a lullaby.

BONUS - Till We Meet Again - Doris Day



"Till We Meet Again" is an American popular song. The music was written by Richard A. Whiting, the lyrics by Raymond B. Egan in 1918. Written during the Great War, the song tells of the parting of a soldier and his sweetheart. The title comes from the final line of the chorus:
Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu,
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you,
Then the skies will see more blue,
Down in lovers lane my dearie,
Wedding bells will ring so merrily,
Every tear will be a memory,
So wait and pray each night for me,
Till we meet again.

As Whiting's daughter Margaret tells it, the song was intended for a 1918 contest at a Detroit theater. Dissatisfied with the result, Whiting threw the manuscript in the trash. His secretary retrieved it and showed it to their boss, publisher Jerome Remick, who submitted it in the contest, where it won top honors.

This song has been commonly used as the anthem of Huddersfield Town FC since the early 20's but with the following lyrics:- SMILE AWHILE

There’s a team that is dear to its followers, They play in the bright blue and white, They’re a team of renown, they’re the pride of the town, And the game of football is their delight, So all the while upon the field of play, Thousands gladly cheer them on their way, Often you can hear them say, Who can beat the Town today? Then the bells will ring so merrily, Every goal will be a memory, So Town play up and bring the cup, Back to Huddersfield.

In 1919, it was the number 1 song of the year as recorded by Henry Burr and Albert Campbell.

From - 01/22/14:
Two cowboy ranchers in Texas each had his own horse, but they could never tell them apart. So the first cowboy said, "I've got it!"

The second cowboy said "What?"

"I'll shave the main on my horse."

"Let's do it!” So the cowboy shaved the main on his horse. But after a while the main grew back.

The cowboys were having a really hard time telling them apart. Then the one cowboy said, "I've got it!

"What? What? What’s your idea now?" said the other.

"I'll cut the tail on my horse really small."

"Alright! Let's do it!" So he cut the tail really short. But after a while it grew back.

Then the second cowboy said, "OK, this time I've got it!" You take the black one and I'll take white one!!!!"

Till We Meet Again

Words by Raymond B. Egan (14 Nov 1890 - 13 Oct 1952)
Music by
Richard A. Whiting (12 Nov 1891 - 10 Feb 1938), 1918

There's a song in the land of the lily
Each sweetheart has heard with a sigh
Over high garden walls
This sweet echo falls
As a soldier boy whispers goodbye.

Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover's lane, my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.

Tho' goodbye means the birth of a tear drop
Hello means the birth of a smile
And the smile will erase
The tear blighting trace
When we meet in the after awhile.

Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover's lane, my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.
