Ruby and the Romantics Our Day Will Come

R&B

The writers of the song, Mort Garson and Bob Hilliard, recorded two versions because they were not sure if they could make it a hit. One version was for easy listening. The second had a bossa nova style and featured a Hammond organ solo. That version was a huge success and went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the R&B chart  in 1963. It went to #38 in the U and #11 in Australia. Ruby and The Romantics won The Rhythm and Blues Foundations Pioneer Award in 1963.

The original group members of Ruby & The Romantics formed in Akron, Ohio, in 1961. They were Ruby Nash, George Lee, Ed Roberts, Ronald Mosley, and Leroy Fann. They also had charting success with “My Summer Love,” “Hey There Lonely Boy,” Young Wongs Can Fly,” Our Everlasting Love,” and “When You’re Young and in Love.” They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2007.

Here are the lyrics to “Our Day Will Come” by Ruby and The Romantics:

“Our day will come
And we’ll have everything.
We’ll share the joy
Falling in love can bring.

No one can tell me
That I’m too young to know (young to know)
I love you so (love you so)
And you love me.

Our day will come
If we just wait a while.
No tears for us –
Think love and wear a smile.

Our dreams have magic
Because we’ll always stay
In love this way
Our day will come.
(Our day will come; our day will come.)

Our dreams have magic
Because we’ll always stay
In love this way.
Our day will come.
Our day will come.”
