AS LONG AS I LIVE
Ella Fitzgerald


Maybe I can't live to love you as long as I want to.

Life isn't long enough baby, but I can love you as long as I live.



Maybe I can't give you diamonds and things like I want to,

But I can promise you, baby, I'm gonna want to as long as I live.



I never cared, but now I'm scared, I won't live long enough.

That's why I wear my rubbers when it rains and eat an apple every day then see

the doctor anyway.



What if I can't live to love you as long as I want to.

Long as I promise you, baby, I'm gonna love you as long I live.



musical interlude



I'll even wear long underwear, when winter breezes blow

I'm gonna take good care of me because, a sneeze or two might mean the flu,

And that would never never do



What if I can't live to love you as long as I want to.

Long as I promise you, baby, I'm gonna love you as long I live.
