Dream well (poetic thought by George-B) and Dream a little dream of me Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong)


Dream well (poetic thought by George-B)

They take your dream, undress it
and turn it into theirs
they take your dream, and dress it in

another one’s costume

 They put your dream up at auction,
Hoping behind the scenes,
You’ll not suspect it, 
they think it is  well worth it

You know your dream was not for sale,
you never though of parting with
Just hoped well deep into your well
Its freshness be thirst quenching

 Your thirst, never appeased 
for just another dream come true,
Your prayer to the gods of dreams, 

your wondrous masterpiece-
The dream long time in waiting .

They Can’t Take That Away From Me: Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald



There are many many crazy things
That will keep me loving you
And with your permission
May I list a few

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No they can’t take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No they can’t take that away from me

We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No they can’t take that away from me

Ella sings “Stormy Weather” with Joe Pass, Hannover 1975


Stormy Weather

 (Ella Fitzgerald)

Don’t know why, there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor old self together
I’m weary all the time, the time, so weary all of the time

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the lord above will let me
walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all of the time

I walk around heavy-hearted and sad
Night comes around and I’m still feeling bad
Rain pourin’ down, blinding every hope I had
This pitter andd n patter and beating, spattering driving  me mad
Love, love, love, love, the misery will be the end of me

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Keeps raining all the time

Stormy weather…

Cry Me A River – Ella Fitzgerald


Now you say you’re lonely.
You cry the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river,
Cry me a river..
I cried a river over you.

Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue.
Well, you can cry me a river,
Cry me a river..
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear.
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me.

And now you say you love me.
Well, just to prove that you do..
Come on and cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river… over you…

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

And now.. now you say you love me.
Well, just to prove that you do..
Come on and cry, cry, cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried, I cried, I cried a river over you.

If my pillow talk, imagine what it would have said.
Could it be a river of tears I cried instead?
Well you can cry me a river,
Go ahead and cry me a river
‘Cause I cried, I cried a river over you
How I cried a river over you..
