Subject: Lyr Add: YOU BELONG TO ME (King, Price, Stewart)
The song of the same name (and Lyrics) is a very old big band number done by the Paul Weston orchestra. His wife, Jo Stafford, was the vocalist and she had a No. 1 hit. It was done in the fifties.

See the pyramids along the Nile,
see the sun rise on a tropic isle.
Just remember, darling, all the while,
You belong to me.

See the market place in old Algiers.
Send me postcards and souvenirs.
Just remember, darling, through the years,
You belong to me.

I'll be be so all alone without you.
Tell me you'll be lonely, too, and blue.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane.
See the jungle when it's wet with rain.
Just remember, darling, all the same,
You belong to me.

Lousy presentation, but there it is. I can't for the life of me remember Dylan ever doing this one!! Maybe it was his blue period. Enjoy
