Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, just for you only,
Why haven't you seen it?
I'm all for you, body and soul!

I spent my days in longing
And wondering why, why it's me that you're wronging?
I tell you that I mean it
I'm all for you, body and soul!

I can't believe it, it's hard to conceive it
That you turn away romance
Are you pretending? Because it looks like the ending
Unless I could have one more chance to prove dear...

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours just for the taking
I would gladly surrender,
Surrender myself to you, body and soul!

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours, I'm yours for just the taking
I would gladly surrender, myself to you
Body and soul!
