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 »

You were my adored one
Then you became the bored one
And I was like a toy that brought you joy one day
A broken toy that you preferred to throw away

If I expected love when first we kissed, blame it on my youth
If only just for you I did exist, blame it on my youth
I believed in everything like a child of three
You meant more than anything all the world to me

If you were on my mind all night and the day, blame it on my youth
If I forgot to eat and sleep and pray, blame it on my youth
And if I cried a little bit when first I learned the truth
Don't blame it on my heart, blame it on my youth
