I've Got A Crush On You Lyrics

Artist: Ella Fitzgerald

How glad the many millions
Of Timothys and Williams
Would be, to capture me
But you had such persistence
You wore down my resistance
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

Someone I like very much just serenaded me with this song while driving back home from a wonderful morning in the mountains. Thank you Ella for putting my feelings into words!

Plese credit the composers. It is from Porgy and Bess. Written by George and Ira Gershwin. Ella did a great version ...although I like Sarah Vaughn's much better.

I wanted to see the lyrics while listening to a piano rendition by Beegie Adair and ran into the Comments/Interpretations...I think my favorite vocal version is by Linda Ronstadt with Nelson Riddle.But no matter whose version is your favorite, it is truely a beautiful song. Alyssa, I hope this song gets/got your career off to a rousing start.

Sorry Dan, as Wikipedia confirms, this song "composed by George Gershwin, with lyrics by Ira unique among Gershwin compositions in that it was used for two different Broadway productions, Treasure Girl (1928), and Strike Up the Band (1930)."
Not for Porgy or Bess.

Sinatra has a terrific version on his Nelson Riddle-arranged "Nice 'n' Easy" album (1960): "How glad the many millions of Annabelles and Lillians / Would be to capture me " That album also features great versions of "You Go to My Head," "How Deep Is the Ocean" and other classic ballads.

BTW, this song taught me a second definition of the word "cunning," meaning quaint or attractive.

I remember the first time I heard this song. I was sitting with the younger sister of a friend of mine who had ambitions as a singer. I lost track of her for years, got back in contact with her about7-8 years ago, I think. We were both married, and she had a job as a singer, but I never got a chance to hear her sing professionally. By chance I tried to contact her on Facebook,only to have a notice put up that she had died about 3 years ago. I later found out that she had been depressed and killed herself. A terrible end to a wonderful young woman who I thought had a great future in front of her. Sorry for venting, but I needed to say it. I had actually had a crush on her but it went nowhere. If only things were different and I could have been there for her as a friend,who knows...
