Love For Sale – Ella Fitzgerald

Lyrics:

When the only sound in the empty street,
Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet
That belong to a lonesome cop
I open shop.
When the moon so long has been gazing down
On the wayward ways of this wayward town.
That her smile becomes a smirk,
I go to work.

Love for sale,
Appetising young love for sale.
Love that’s fresh and still unspoiled,
Love that’s only slightly soiled,
Love for sale.
Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who’s prepared to pay the price,
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale
Let the poets pipe of love
In their childish way,
I know every type of love
Better far than they.
If you want the thrill of love,
I’ve been through the mill of love;
Old love, new love
Every love but true love
Love for sale.

Appetising young love for sale.
If you want to buy my wares.
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale.
Love for sale.

  1. This is truly the definitive version of the song, mainly because it includes the into that Cole Porter wrote to go with it, leaving no doubt what the song is actually about. Ella's superb voice and style captures its essence perfectly.

  2. I'm very thankful to have seen Ella twice, live in Belfast,in the 60's .She was with out doubt the greatest singer of all time.

  3. Wow…her voice is so silky smooth. Jealous? Heck yeah! I'd love to be able to sound like Ella but even more than that, I wish I had been around to see her sing this joint in person. Due to my musical tastes, I've been told on many occasions that I was just born too late. I prefer to think I was around back in the day but "fell victim to jazz and liquor"! I'm just rediscovering the grand music of my past life!

  5. I love Julie London's version of this song, but I must admit that this is the definitive one. I like that she sings the introduction and.. well.. Ella.
