Love for Sale
Cannonball Adderley Lyrics

Love for sale
Appetizing young love for sale
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled
Love that's only slightly soiled
Love for sale

Who will buy? Come on now
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 off love
In their childish way
You know, 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

Appetizing young, young love for sale
If you want to buy my wares
Follow me, climb the stairs
Love for sale

Love, love, love for sale
Love, love, love for sale
Love, love, love for sale
Love, love, love for sale

One of the greatest albums ever created...coming from a metalhead!

Ray Carroll

Love for Sale is one my favorite compositions. It has an unusual form. Adderley blows through the changes as effortlessly as a knife slicing butter.

bill parsons

One of my favorite Cannonball lines: the bridge of his second chorus (4:25).


Lucky to find this song....Ten years ago,someone gave me this aIbum,and I heard it just for once.Then my classmate borrowed the album out and never gave it back ... I can't even remember the album's name! Now I can buy it back again....thanks for your publicing^^


my favorite version of this song-Miles and Cannon just have so much feeling.

Jasper Chance

Hank Jones was known as the Rolls Royce of Piano players, the introduction states it well.


Great music on this album. Mobile Fidelity should re-issue the album on vinyl and SACD.

Eric Wright

I love time changes in this track....... Classic!
