I WISH I WAS BACK IN MY BABY'S ARMS Duke Ellington (m) Kermit Goell (l) 1948 as rec by Lena Horne also rec by Doris Drew w The Judd Conlon Quintette cond by Earle Hagen I wish I was back in my baby's arms, I wish I was back to stay! Every time I kissed him, I'd tell him how I missed him And promise I would never go away! Yes, I wish I was back in my baby's arms, I'd gladly take the blame! I'd wrap my blues in cellophane and put them on the shelf, And then I'd find a mirror and congratulate myself! Oh-ho, I wish I was back in my baby's arms, And I wish my baby wished the same! I wish I was back in my baby's arms, I wish I was back to stay! Ah, every time, every time I kissed him, I'd tell him, I'd tell him how I missed him And promise, promise I would never go away! Yes, I wish I was back in my baby's arms, Why I'd gladly take the blame! I'd wrap my blues in cellophane, put 'em on the shelf, And then I'd find a mirror and congratulate myself! Yes, I wish I was back in my baby's arms, And I wish my baby wished, And I wish my baby wished the same! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2012)
