The Other Woman.. (written by Jessie Mae Robinson,1919--1966 )

First artist to ever record this song, was Sarah Vaughan (in 1955 and released in 1956).
This great version (in my humble opinion, unsurpassed), is from the fabulous album " NINA AT TOWNHALL " NYC Sept 15th. 1959 .
My apology for putting the wrong date on the video (not '58..but '59)

The other woman finds time to manicure her nails
The other woman is perfect where her rival fails
And she's never seen with pincurls in her hair

The other woman enchantes her clothes in French perfume
The other woman keeps fresh cut flowers in each room
There are never toys that's scattered everywhere
And when her man comes to call
He'll find her waiting like a lonesome Queen
Cause when she's by his side
it's such a change from old routine

Ohh oh the other woman
Will always cry herself to sleep
The other woman will never have his love to keep
And as the years go by the other woman
Will spend her life Alone.....

Piano solo
Repeat last verse.
