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 »

Is there anyone around who cannot see
It's the well-known runaround you're giving me?
I suppose you'll tell me I'm all wrong.
It's a bitter pill to take,
Coming from you,
Though I've made a big mistake,
What can I do?
I don't know what makes me string along.

[Chorus]
I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.
I forgive you,
Cause I can't forget you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come knocking at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist,
And I come running back for more.

I should hate you,
But I guess I love you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.
