As performed by Sophie Tucker, 1911 recording, transcribed by
Adrian Launcelot:

    Two sweethearts courted happily for quite a while,
    'Midst simple life of country folk,
    When the lad told girlie he must go away.
    Her little heart with grief 'most broke.
    Well, she said, "You know I love you, honey; I love you, honey, best
    of all.
    So don't go away."
    Just as he went to go, it grieved the girlie so
    These words he heard her say:

    "Some of these days,
    Oh, you'll miss me honey
    Some of these days,
    You're gonna  feel so lonely
    You're gonna miss my huggin',
    You're gonna miss my kissin'.
    You're gonna miss me honey when I'm far away.
    I feel so lonely, just for you only.
    You know honey, I've let you have your way!
    And when you leave me,
    I know t'will grieve me
    You'll miss your little (SCATTING?),
    baby, some of these days!"

    The little girlie, feeling blue said "I'll go too,
    And show him two can play this game."
    When her honey heard this melancholy news,
    why he quickly came back home again.
    But when he reached her house
    He found his girl had gone.
    So down he rushes to the train
    While it was pulling out,
    He heard his girlie shout
    This loving, sweet refrain:

    "Some of these days,
    You'll miss me honey!
    Some of these days,
    You'll feel so lonely!
    You're gonna  feel so lonely
    You're gonna miss my huggin',
    You're gonna miss my kissin'.
    You're gonna miss me honey when I'm far away.
    I feel so lonely, just for you only.
    You know honey, I've let you have your way!
    And when you leave me,
    I know t'will grieve me
    Gonna miss your little (SCATTING?),
    baby, some of these days!"

(The word "scatting" above is likely to be incorrect - this part
of the recording (to a brown wax Eddison cylinder) was difficult to
transcribe due to poor sound quality.)

As performed by Sophie Tucker (1926 recording), Ella Fitzgerald
Transcribed by Adrian Launcelot:

    Some of these days you'll miss me, honey
    Some of these days you're gonna be so lonely
    You'll miss my huggin'; you're gonna miss my kissin'
    You're gonna miss me, honey, when I'm far  away
    I feel so lonely, for you only
    'cause you know, honey, you've always had your way
    And when you leave me you know it's gonna grieve me
    Gonna miss your big, fat mamma, your mamma some of these days

    Some of these days you'll miss me, honey
    Some of these days you're gonna be so lonely
    You'll miss my huggin'; you're gonna miss my kissin'
    Oh, you're gonna miss me, honey, when I'm far  away
    I feel so lonely, for you only
    'cause you know, honey, you've always had your way
    And when you leave me you know it's gonna grieve me
    Gonna miss your big, fat mamma, your mamma some of these days
