LET'S KARAOKE 16 : KIM APPLEBY - DON'T WORRY

Once upon a time, this one was a favourite of mine. Kim Appleby was one half of the duo 'Mel And Kim', a group she fronted with her sister Mel Appleby. They had a few big hits back in the 80s such as 'Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)' and 'Respectable'. Their music was very much Stock Aitken Waterman which was the rage among club-goers back then (some might diss the SAW sound now but seriously, it was truly BIG then). Sadly, Mel And Kim's rise to fame was stopped short when Mel was diagnosed with cancer. After a few years hiatus (Kim took care of Mel when she was sick) and Mel's death in 1990 (from pneumonia), Kim released her eponymous debut album (also in 1990). The album produced a few hit singles and one of them was this song 'Don't Worry'.

In no time
You'll be fine
Don't worry

Don't worry
Don't worry

You met a guy

He said he was your lover
He said he loved you like no other
He told you that you were the only one
How could he say that when he's having so much fun

Now he says you're making him sad
How is that when he treats you so bad
Now he's gone
Left you for another
You're not the first
You now discover

Don't you cry
You'll get by

You'll be back on you feet
In no time
You'll be fine
Don't worry

You got hurt, you got hurt
You're not the first
Your heart aches
It won't last
It will pass
Don't worry

Don't waste your time thinking of the past
Love like that could never last girl

Don't you know things happen for a reason
It's meant to be just like the change of seasons
You're not to blame
Don't you feel so bad
He was the one who was making you sad
Now he's gone
Left you for another
It's for the best
You will discover


Don't you cry

You'll get by
You'll be back on you feet

In no time
You'll be fine
Don't worry
You got hurt, you got hurt
You're not the first
Your heart aches
It won't last
It will pass
Don't worry
Don't worry
Don't worry


Standing all of my own

Love will never be the same without him
Trying hard to be strong
How can I go on
Now he's gone

Don't you cry
You'll get by
You'll be back on you feet
In no time
You'll be fine
Don't worry
You got hurt, you got hurt
You're not the first

Your heart aches
It won't last
It will pass
Don't worry

Don't you cry
You'll get by
You'll be back on you feet

In no time
You'll be fine
Don't worry
You got hurt, you got hurt
You're not the first
Your heart aches
It won't last
It will pass
Don't worry
