As recorded by Ella Fitzgerald (with Stuff Smith, Paul Smith, Ben Webster, Barney Kessel, Joe Mondragon and Alvin Stoller), September 1956, Los Angeles: Squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Come on and squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Want you to know I go for your squeezin'! Want you to know It really is pleasin'! Want you to know I ain't for no teasin'! (scat). Treat me sweet and gentle When you say goodnight, Just squeeze me, But please don't tease me! I get sentimental When you hold me tight, Just squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Missing you since you went away, Singing the blues away each day, Counting the nights and waiting for you! I'm in the mood to let you know I never knew I loved you so, Please say you love me too! When I get this feelin' I'm in ecstasy! So squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Missing you since you went away, Singing the blues away each day, Counting the nights and waiting for you! I'm in the mood to let you know I never knew I loved you so, Please say you love me too! When I get this feelin' I'm in ecstasy! So squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Come on and squeeze me, But please don't tease me! Hear me honey, talkin', Squeeze me, But please don't tease me! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2012)
