Lush life

by Ella Fitzgerald. Buy album CD: Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Duke Ellington Disc 2

I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life
Through jazz and cocktails

The girls there all had sad and sullen gray faces
With distand gay traces
That used to be there you could see where they've been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve o' clock tales

Then you came along with your siren song
to tempt me to madness
I thought for awhile that your ponient smile
was tinged with the sadness
of a great love for me
but oh I was wrong
again I was wrong

Life is lonely again
and only last year everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
a trough full of hearts would only be a bore

A week in Paris would ease the bite of it
All I care is to smile in spite of it.
I'll forget you I will
While yet you are still
burning inside my brain

Romance is mush
stifling those who strive
I'll live a lush life in some small dive

And there I'll be
While I rot with the rest
of those whose lifes are lonely too.

cd Buy "Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Duke Ellington Disc 2" CD
  1. All too soon
  2. Azure
  3. Bli-blip
  4. Don't get around much any more
  5. Everything but you
  6. I got it bad (and that ain't good)
  7. I let a song go out of my heart
  8. I'm just a lucky so and so
  9. In a mellow tone
  10. In a sentimental mood
  11. It don't mean a thing (if it ain't got that swing)
  12. Just squeeze me (but don't tease me)
  13. Love you madly
  14. Lush life
  15. Mood indigo
  16. Prelude to a kiss
  17. Squatty roo
