Thread Name: Lyr Req: Round Midnight (Thelonious Monk)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Round Midnight (Thelonious Monk)
Before this thread fades away entirely, let me say that the best set of lyrics for this that I know isn't the set quoted above but the one made by Jon Hendricks (Monk's favourite lyricist), and recorded by Carmen McRae on "Carmen Sings Monk". She actually sings both sets, one after the other, and the Hendricks set is the second. See if you don't prefer it.
