Body and Soul
Coleman Hawkins Lyrics


My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for the very taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

"I didn't even bother to listen to it afterwards. Got through playing it, packed up my horn and walked out." - Coleman Hawkins (on his legendary recording of "Body and Soul")

With no rehearsal and just one take, Hawkins captured musical lightning. “His eyes were closed,” his pianist Gene Rodgers recalled, “and he just played as if he was in heaven.”

God said to Coleman "Trust Me" and Coleman said, "I hear you Lord"

Ole Birger Pedersen

At least he sent us to heaven.

He wasn't unprepared and unrehearsed. Gunther Schuller: "When he opened at Kelly's Stables on 52nd Street in October 1939, he would often play an expanded version of Body & Soul late at night, a piece he had undoubtedly already explored in a similar fashion while still in Europe,"
