Skeeter Davis: "The End Of The World"

A hit from the year 1963



Il suo vero nome era Mary Frances Penick. Nata il 30 dicembre 1931, ci ha lasciati il 19 settembre 2004.
Con lo pseudonimo di "Skeeter Davis" divenne abbastanza famosa come cantante country che finì per prediligere lo stile "ibrido", ovvero l'incrocio con il pop.
Aveva iniziato da ragazzina cantando con The Davis Sisters alla fine degli Anni Quaranta e il clou della sua carriera fu proprio questa canzone, "The End Of The World", nel 1963.


Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'Cause you don't love me any more


Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love


I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does


Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye


Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye
