I WALK A LITTLE FASTER Cy Coleman (m) Caroline Leigh (l) as rec by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) w Ray Brown (bass) Herb Ellis (guitar) & Jo Jones (drums) Sept 1957 also rec by- Fiona Apple Tony Bennett Pretending that we'll meet ech time I turn a corner, I walk a little faster. Pretending life is sweet 'cause love's around the corner, I walk a little faster. Can't begin to see my future shine as yet; No sign as yet You're mine as yet! Rushing to'ard a face I can't define as yet; Keep bumping into walls And taking lots of falls! But even though I meet at each and every corner With nothing but disaster, I set my chin a little higher, Hope a little longer, Build a little stronger Castle in the air, And thinking you'll be there, I walk a little faster! Can't begin to see my future shine as yet; No sign as yet You're mine as yet! Rushing to'ard a face I can't define as yet; Keep bumping into walls And taking lots of falls! But even though I meet at each and every corner With nothing but disaster, I set my chin a little higher, Hope a little longer, Build a little stronger Castle in the air, And thinking you'll be there, I walk a little faster!
