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 »

Though you say we're through,
I'll always love you 
And you can depend on me
Though someone that you've met 
Has made you forget, 
Honey, you know you can count on me 

When I wish, I wish you success 
And loads, loads of happiness
But baby, I gotta confess
I'll be lonely
If you ever, if you ever need a friend,
I'll be yours until the end
And you can depend on me

I wish you success
And loads of happiness
But, darling, I gotta confess
I'm gonna be lonely

Oh if you ever, if you ever need a friend,
I'll be right by your side 'til the end
And you can depend on me
You can depend on me
