DEARIE'S BLUES (Blossom Dearie 1959) Blossom Dearie (vocal and piano) with Kenny Burrell (guitar) Ray Brown (bass) and Ed Thigpen (drums) recorded 1959 New York My name is Blossom, I was raised in a lion's den, My name is Blossom, I was raised in a lion's den, My nightly occupation is stealin' other women's men! I'm an evil woman, but I wanna do a man some good, I'm an evil woman, but I wanna do a man some good, I'm Gina Lollobrigida, I ain't Red Riding Hood! If you don't like my peaches baby, why do you shake my tree? If you don't like my peaches baby, why do you shake my tree? Get out o' my peaches baby, let my peach tree be! Now don't you "oo-scoodley-a-do scoodley-a-de" and I won't "ya-ye-do-do-do-do", If you don't "oo-scoodley-a-do scoodley-a-de" and I won't "ya-ye-do-do-do-do", So don't you "oo-scoodley-a-do scoodley-a-de" and I won't "ya-ye-do-do-do-do". Some me like me 'cause I'm happy, Some think I'm snappy, Some call me honey And some think I've got money, But Ray Brown told me I was built for speed! You put 'em all together, everything a good man needs, You put 'em all together, everything a good man needs! note - although claimed to be written by Blossom, some of the lyrics would appear to have been taken from other sources (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2014)
