Six shirts and collars, Debts beyond endurance, All my life insurance, That belongs to you! Well I've got a heart that must be spurtin', Just be certain that I'll be true! Take my five dollars, Take my shirts and collars, Take my heart that hollers, 'Cause everything I've got belongs to you! Well I've got two lips that care for mating, Therefore waiting will not do! Take my five dollars, Take my shirts and collars, Take my heart that hollers, 'Cause everything I got belongs to you! (Contributed by Peter Akers - October 2009) ************************* as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Buddy Bregman & his Orch Aug 21st 1956 Los Angeles Mister Shylock was stingy, I was miserly too! I was more selfish And crabby as a shellfish! Oh dear, It's queer What love can do; I'd give all my possessions to you! I've got five dollars, I'm in good condition, And I've got ambition, That belongs to you! Six shirts and collars, Debts beyond endurance, All my life insurance, That belongs to you! I've got a heart that must be spurtin', Just be certain I'll be true! Take my five dollars, Take my shirts and collars, Take my heart that hollers, Everything I've got belongs to you! I've got five dollars, Eighty five relations, Two lace combinations, They belong to you! Two coats with collars, Me and grandma wore 'em, All the moths adore 'em, They belong to you! WI've got two lips that care for mating, Therefore waiting will not do! Take my five dollars, Take my coats and collars, Take my heart that hollers, Everything I got belongs to you!
