I Can't Give You Anything But Love
Sonny Stitt Lyrics


Gee, but it's tough to be broke, kid.
It's not a joke, kid, it's a curse.
My luck is changing, it's gotten from
simply rotten to something worse
Who knows, some day I will win too.
I'll begin to reach my prime.

Now though I see what our end is,
All I can spend is just my time.

I can't give you anything but love, baby.
That's the only thing I've plenty of,baby.

Dream awhile, scheme awhile
We're sure to find

Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for.

Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, baby.
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby.

Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby.
I can't give you anything but love.

Rome wasn't built in a day, kid.
You have to pay, kid, for what you get.
But I am willing to wait, dear,
Your little mate, dear, will not forget.

You have a lifetime before you.
I'll adore you, come what may.

Please don't be blue for the present,
When it's so pleasant to hear you say

I can't give you anything but love, baby.
That's the only thing I've plenty of,baby.

Dream awhile, scheme awhile
We're sure to find

Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for.

Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, baby.
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby.

Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby.
I can't give you anything but love.

This swings so hard I am in pain.

So glad we had Sonny and his incredible oeuvre to listen to appreciate even after Bird was gone

10代でこのアルバムに出会いました。以来35年道を迷わずに音楽を聴けています。そんな指針のようなレコードです。大好きです。

この演奏でPetersonは終始Stittを立てていますが、自分らしさを失うことなく、その結果極めてバランスのよいものに仕上がっています。真に音楽的な表現者同士の共演が成功した好例だと思います。コメントありがとうございました。
