I'VE GOT A CRUSH ON YOU
Ella Fitzgerald


How glad the many millions

Of Timothys and Williams

Would be, to capture me

I fell, and it was swell

You're my big and brave and handsome Romeo

How I won you I shall never, never know

It's not that you're attractive

But oh, my heart grew active

When you came into view


I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie

All the day and nighttime, hear me sigh

I never had the least notion

That I could fall with such emotion

Could you coo, could you care

For a cunning cottage we could share

The world will pardon my mush

Cause I've got a crush, my baby, on you


Could you coo, could you care

For a cunning cottage we could share

The world will pardon my mush

Cause I've got a crush, my baby, on you
