GHOSTS
Ella Fitzgerald


After one whole quart of brandy

Like a daisy, I'm awake

With no Bromo-Seltzer handy

I don't even shake



Men are not a new sensation

I've done pretty well I think

But this half-pint imitation

Put me on the blink



I'm wild again, beguiled again

A simpering, whimpering child again

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep

When love came and told me, I shouldn't sleep

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



Lost my heart, but what of it

He is cold I agree

He can laugh, but I love it

Although the laugh's on me



I'll sing to him, each spring to him

And long, for the day when I'll cling to him

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



He's a fool and don't I know it

But a fool can have his charms

I'm in love and don't I show it

Like a babe in arms



Love's the same old sad sensation

Lately I've not slept a wink

Since this half-pint imitation

Put me on the blink



I've sinned a lot, I'm mean a lot

But I'm like sweet seventeen a lot

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



I'll sing to him, each spring to him

And worship the trousers that cling to him

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



When he talks, he is seeking

Words to get, off his chest

Horizontally speaking, he's at his very best



Vexed again, perplexed again

Thank God, I can be oversexed again

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I



Wise at last, my eyes at last,

Are cutting you down to your size at last

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - no more



Burned a lot, but learned a lot

And now you are broke, so you earned a lot

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - no more



Couldn't eat, was dispeptic

Life was so hard to bear

Now my heart's antiseptic

Since you moved out of there



Romance, finis. Your chance, finis.

Those ants that invaded my


ELLA FITZGERALD

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz vocalist with a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6).
