Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996), also known as the "First Lady of Song", "Queen of Jazz", and "Lady Ella", was an American jazz and song vocalist. With a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. more »

I fetch his slippers, fill up the pipe he smokes
I cook the kippers, laugh at his oldest jokes
Yet here I anchor, I might have had a banker
Boy! what love has done to me

His nature`s funny, quarrelsome half the time
And as for money, he hasn`t got a dime
And here`s the joker, I might have had a broker
Boy! what love has done to me

When a guy looks my way
Does he get emphatic, say he gets dramatic?
I just want to fly `way
But if I left him I`d be all at sea

I`m just a slavery, life is a funny thing
He`s got the gravy, I got a wedding ring
And still I love him, there`s nobody above him
Boy! what love has done to me

His brains are minus,
Never a thought in sight
And yet his highness
Lectures me day and night;
Oh where was my sense
To sign that wedding license?
Boy! What love has done to me!

My life he`s wrecking, bet you could find him now
Out somewhere necking somebody else`s frau
You get to know life when married to a low life
Boy! what love has done to me

I can`t hold my head up
The butcher, the baker, oh no he`s a faker
Brother I am fed up
But if I left him he`d be up a tree

Where will it wind up, I don`t know where I`m at
I make my mind up, I oughta leave him flat
But I have grown so, I love that dirty so-and-so
Boy! what love has done to me
