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 »

My man don't love me
Treats me oh-so mean
My man he don't love me
Treats me awful mean
He's the lowest man
That I've ever seen

He wears high-trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow
He wears high-trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow

But when he starts in to love me
He's so fine and mellow

Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Make you stay out all night long

Love will make you do things
That you know is wrong

But if you treat me right, baby
I'll stay home everyday
Just treat me right, baby
I'll stay home night and day

But you're so mean to me, baby
I know you're gonna drive me away

Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on
Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on

Sometimes when you think it's on, baby
It has turned off and gone
