Johnny Dankworth (and Dame Cleo Laine, Lady Dankworth) – Let’s Slip Away

Happy New Year!

Cleo 240x300 Johnny Dankworth (and Dame Cleo Laine, Lady Dankworth)   Lets Slip AwayWhile frantically searching for the lyrics of this song, I was proud to discover that one of my favourite vocalists, Dame Dankworth, is of Jamaican descent! I didn’t find the complete lyrics anywhere online so I’ve decided to listen and share what I hear with you who may also be searching, frantically!
From the Divas of Jazz collection.


Let’s slip away somewhere quiet
Let’s slip away and live on a diet of
Love and kisses all day
Slip away, slip away

Let’s slip away, let’s play truant
Let’s go today just us- me and you
And the hour we’ll let slip away
Slip away, slip away

Can you picture those lazy mornings?
Can you picture those crazy nights?
We’ll be alone and on our own
We’ll touch the heights

Let’s slip away we just need
Enough time to play, a garden of Eden
Where love is happy to stay
Nevermore slip away.

Can you picture those lazy mornings?
Can you picture those crazy nights?
We’ll be alone and on our own
We’ll touch the heights

Let’s slip away we just need
Enough time to play, a garden of Eden
Where love is happy to stay
Nevermore slip away
Nevermore slip away
Nevermore slip away.
