If You Go Away" is an adaptation of the 1959 Jacques Brel (Belgium) song "Ne me quitte pas" with English lyrics by Rod McKuen. Created as part of a larger project to translate Brel's work, "If You Go Away" is considered a pop standard and has been recorded by many artists, including Greta Keller, for whom some say McKuen wrote the lyrics. Damita Jo reached on the Adult Contemporary chart and on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1966 for her version of the song

If your chopsticks aren’t disposable, then place the utensils along the left edge of your dish.
