Billy Eckstine

William Clarence Eckstine (July 8, 1914 – March 8, 1993) was an American singer of ballads and a bandleader of the swing era. Eckstine's smooth baritone and distinctive vibrato broke down barriers throughout the 1940s, first as leader of the original bop big-band, then as the first romantic black male in popular music. Eckstine's recording of "I Apologize" (MGM Pop Single, 1948) was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1999. more »

I've got to know where I stand
I just for to know where I am with you

So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me

Walkin' holdin' hands, you say you're mine all mine
Then soon another face steals your eyes away
It's just a guessing game and I can't help feelin' used
Love shouldn't be so darn confused

So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me

People love to talk, they say you're usin' me
Though face to face you swear I'm the only one
If I had a crystal ball I would gaze into your mind
See what you were thinkin', if my ship was sinkin'
If you're leavin' me behind

So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me

Girl, it should be so darn easy to do
If you love me like I love you

Girl, if I had a crystal ball (A crystal ball) I would gaze into your mind
See what you were thinkin', if my ship was sinkin'
If you're leavin' me behind

So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me

Girl, it should be so darn easy to do
If you love me like I love you

So here's penny for your thoughts (Hey, baby), a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me (You tell me you love me)
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me

So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss (Ooh, your thoughts, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss (Ooh, a kiss, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me

Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts {Only me, only me}, a nickel for a kiss
(Just me) {Yeah, yeah, yeah} (Oh, yeah, yeah)

Penny for your thoughts (Just your thoughts), a nickel for a kiss (And a kiss, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me (Tell me you love me)
Penny for your thoughts {Only me}, a nickel for a kiss {Darling, can't you see}
(Oh, yeah) {Yeah, yeah} (Yeah, yeah)

Penny for your thoughts (Ooh, baby), a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
