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 a sentimental sap, that's all,
What's the use of trying not to fall?
I have no will, you've made your kill
Cause you took advantage of me.
I'm just like an apple on a bough
And you're gonna shake me down somehow,
So what's the use, you've cooked my goose
Cause you took advantage of me.
I'm so hot and bothered that I don't know
My elbow from my ear.
I suffer something awful each time you go
And much worse when you're near.
Here I am with all my bridges burned,
Just a babe in arms where you're concerned,
So lock the doors and call me yours
Cause you took advantage of me.
