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 »

I'm gonna lock my heart 
And throw away the key 
I'm wise to all those tricks you played on me 
I'm gonna turn my back on love 
Gonna snob the moon above 
Seal all my windows up with tin 
So the love bug can't get in 
Park my romance right alone the curb 
Hang a sign upon my heart 
"Please don't disturb" 
And if I never fall in love again 
That's soon enough for me 
I'm gonna lock my heart 
And throw the key 

And it I never tall in love again 
That's soon enough for me 
I!m gonna lock my heart 
And throw away the key 

I'll never fall in love again 
I'm gonna lock my heart 
And throw away the key
