Chick Webb / Ellsworth 1938
Ella Fitzgerald & Taft Jordan w Chick Webb & his Orch
rec June 9th 1938 New York
Now Ella, it's you I'm adoring,
Ella, your sweetness is calling
In my heart you started a song;
Now in my arms is where (scat) you belong!
Ella, don't keep me imploring,
Let's steal away, just we two.
You need no fortune teller
For you, my Cinderella,
I love you, sweet Ella, I do!
Now if you love me like you sing it,
Then you really have to swing it!
Take your trumpet down from your side
And really play your part!
