Ella Fitzgerald

I ain' axin' yo' opinion.
Oh, Bess, oh where's my Bess,
Won't somebody tell me where?
I ain' care what she say,
I ain' care what she done,

Won't somebody tell me where's my Bess?

where is she?
Oh Gawd, in yo' big Heav'n
please show me where I mus' go,
oh give me de strength, show me de way!
Tell me de truth, where is she, where is my gal,
where is my Bess!
