Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996), also known as the "First Lady of Song", "Queen of Jazz", and "Lady Ella", was an American jazz and song vocalist. With a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. more »

I'm on the beam; I've got a flash
On how to live in the civilization
To make a dream come out of hash
Give a little, get a little love

A morning smile, an evening kiss
Can be the pills for the ills of the nation
Don't cramp your style; remember this
Give a little, get a little love

No love, no hope
Then life's a dungeon
So throw the sponge in
With love there's hope
Sing, hey, hallelujah

So take a share and share the fun
And keep the cold from this whole constellation
It's everywhere for everyone
Make a little, take a little
Take a little, live a little
Give a little, get a little love

You carry on, tied in a knot
To earn the pay that your neighbor is earning
But when it's gone, what have you got?
Give a little, get a little love

You never think till there's a storm
And till the real things you feel like returning
You know that mink won't keep you warm
Give a little, get a little love

No love, no joy
Then life's a nuisance and not worth two cents
With love, there's joy
Sing hey hallelujah

So take a share and share the fun
And keep the cold from this whole constellation
It's everywhere for everyone
Make a little, take a little
Take a little, live a little
Give a little, get a little love

No joy, no joy
Give a little, get a little
Give a little, get a little

Make a little, take a little 
Live a little, give a little 
Give a little, get a little love
