Mood Indigo, renditon by Nina Simone
(1930) Barney Bigard, Duke Ellington, Irving Mills
 

You ain’t never been blue
Till you’ve had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh
Go along blues
I always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
And in the evening when the lights are low
I’m so lonely I could cry
For there’s nobody who cares about me
I’m just a poor fool that’s bluer than blue can be
When I get that mood indigo
I could lay me down and die 
You ain’t never been blue, no, no, no
You ain’t never been blue, no, no, no
You ain’t never been blue
Till you’ve had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh
Go along blues
 

Nina Simone: Wild Is The Wind



Wild Is The Wind (1957), by  Dimitri Tiomkin, Ned Washington
Rendition by Nina Simone

Love me love me love me
Say you do
Let me fly away
with you
For my love is like
the wind
And wild is the wind
Give me more

than one caress
Satisfy this
hungriness
Let the wind
blow through your heart
For wild is the wind
You…

touch me…
I hear the sound
of mandolins
You…
kiss me…
With your kiss
my life begins
You’re spring to me
All things
to me
Don’t you know you’re

life itself
Like a leaf clings
to a tree
Oh my darling,
cling to me
For we’re creatures
of the wind
And wild is the wind
So wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

Wild is the wind
