Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye
Ella Fitzgerald Lyrics


Ev'ry time we say goodbye
I die a little
Ev'ry time we say goodbye
I wonder why a little

Why the Gods above me
Who must be in the know
Think so little of me
They allow you to go

When you're near
There's such an air of spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere
Begin to sing about it

There's no love song finer
But how strange the change
From major to minor
Ev'ry time we say goodbye

When you're near
There's such an air of spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere
Begin to sing about it

There's no love song finer
But how strange the change
From major to minor
Ev'ry time we say goodbye

Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little,

Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,

Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know.

Think so little of me, they allow you to go.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,

I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,

There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to minor,

Everytime we say goodbye.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,

I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,

There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to minor,

Everytime we say goodbye.

Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little,
Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,
Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know.
Think so little of me, they allow you to go.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to Minor,

Everytime we say goodbye.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to Minor,

Everytime we say goodbye.

Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,
Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know.
Think so little of me, they allow you to go.
When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to

Everytime we say goodbye.
When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

There's no musical instrument like the human voice.

You are right.

Certainly none like Ella's!

When I listen to Ella I can't breathe, I get totally overwhelmed by the sound of her voice. Ella Fitzgerald's voice was the perfect sound, it was multi-layered and full like listening to a complete orchestra and her subtle shading was phenomenal. This coupled with her perfect pitch and impeccable phrasing make her the greatest singer of all time.

She must be reïncarnated. Check the version of Angelina Jordan on te roof top on a hotel. She was 11 jears old, now she is 14. You Will fall from your chair.
Then check her gloomy sunday from Billy Holliday when she was 7. Don't forget your tissues.
I warn you, listening to her makes you an addict

i couldnt't put it any better. Her voice is so complex like an orchestra but so simple at the same time. it brings out my emotions like no other.

Lou Levy, one of her pianists, summed it up best - "It's never going to be that good again. It just isn't available."
Oh Ella, you are simply the best. Period.
