Ella: What Is This Thing Called Love, 1961

video
The queen to Sinatra's king. The year of my bar mitzvah. Too bad she couldn't perform instead of Leo Fuld of the Cafe Sahbra.
I was a humdrum person
leading a life apart
when love flew in through my window wide
and quickened my humdrum heart
love flew in through my window
I was so happy then
but after love had stayed a little while
love flew out again
what is this thing called love
this funny thing
called love
just who can solve its mystery
why should it make
a fool of me?
I saw you there
one wonderful day
you took my heart
and threw it away
thats why I ask the lord
in heaven above
what is this thing
called love?
what is this thing called love
this funny thing
called love
just who can solve its mystery
why should it make
a fool of me?
I saw you there
one wonderful day
you took my heart
and threw it away
thats why I ask the lord
in heaven above
what is this thing
called love?
