Skeeter Davis sings 'The End of the World' live at the Midnight Special on April 6, 1973.

The song was her biggest hit in 1963 and of her career. Reaching #2 on Billboards country and pop charts,#1 Adult Contemporary Easy Listening hit and #4 hit on Billboard's rhythm and blues (R&B) chart. A remarkable achievement since nobody has done that before. Lyrics were written by Sylvia Dee in memory of her father and the music by Arthur Kent.

Lyric:
Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
Cause you don't love me anymore

Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand no I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye
