Count Basie

William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother first taught him piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and improvised to accompany silent films at a local theatre in his town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935. more »

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand
Pulling me closer, closer
In your arms
Can't resist your loving charms
You're like quicksand sinking me deeper
In love with you

The more I fight it
The deeper in love I get
Each time you hold me
I feel nothing but happiness
It's not safe loving you this way
But from your arms I can't stay

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Pulling me closer, closer
Making me love you
Need you
(Deeper) Sinking me deeper, deeper
In love with you.

(Deeper. Deeper. Deeper!
In love with you.)

My heart is a prisoner
Of your warm embrace
I can't help, can't help myself
Nothing can take your place
When you say sweet things to me
I start trembling from head to feet

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Pulling me closer, closer
A- just can't resist you
A-just want to kiss you

You're like quicksand, yeah!

Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Sinking me deeper
Sinking me deeper
I just can't resist you
I just want to kiss you
