I DON'T WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE - ELLA FITZGERALD, SY OLIVER
Ella Fitzgerald


You say you love me, and I believe you do
You really really love me 'cause I love you

CHORUS:
I don't wanna take a chance
I don't wanna take a chance
I don't wanna take a chance and come out
Oh, and come out, and come out
Only losin' in

I still remember the last love I had
Left me so blue and oh so sad
But I just wanna let you know...
(chorus)

I've had lonely days oh and lonely nights
That's something that I don't wanna go through, no no
Just give my heart some time
And I know I'll make up mind
When I give it up, I'm gonna give it up to you
You, you you you

One day, baby, when my heart is stronger
And I'll have this fear no longer
Maybe then I'll come running to you
But right now...
(chorus
