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 »

Just a gigolo, everywhere you go
People know the part you're playing. (I'm playing)
Paid for every dance, selling each romance,
Every night some heart betraying.
There will come a day, youth will pass away,
Then what will they say about you? (about me?)
When the end comes, I know,
They'll say "Just a gigolo,"
As life goes on without you. (without me)
