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 »

Ask me how do I feel, ask me now that we're cozy and clingin'
Well sir, all I can say, is if I were a bell I'd be ringin'
From the moment we kissed tonight, that's the way I've just gotta behave
Boy, if I were a lamp I'd light or if I were a banner I'd wave

Ask me how do I feel, little me with my quiet upbringing
Well sir, all I can say is if gate I'd be swinging
And if I were a watch I'd start popping my springs
Or if I were a bell I'd go ding dong, ding dong ding

Yes, I knew my morale would crack
From the wonderful way that you looked
Boy, if I were a duck I'd quack
Or if I were a goose I'd be cooked

Ask me how do I feel, ask me now that we're fondly caressing
Well, if I were a salad, I know I'd be splashing my dressing
Or if I were a season, I'd surely be spring
Or if I were a gate, I would swing, have a fling almost any old thing
Or if I were a bell I'd go ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding ding dong
