Oh Lady Be Good
Charlie Parker Lyrics


Listen to my tale of woe,
It's terribly sad but true,
All dressed up, no place to go
Each evening I'm awfully blue.

I must win some handsome guy
Can't go on like this,
I could blossom out I know,
With somebody just like you. So
Oh, sweet and lovely lady, be good
Oh, lady, be good to me
I am so awfully misunderstood
So lady, be good to me
Oh, please have some pity
I'm all-alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,
So lady be good to me.

Oh, please have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,
So lady be good to me.
Oh lady be good to me.

Always loved this recording, especially the solos by Parker and Willie Smith.

Maria campagnolo

Legend has it that Parker's solo was so astounding to the other musicians that no one want to follow him. Notice that the piano player does not take a solo, he continues to play back up, Finally, someone pushed Lester Young on to the stage.

It's documented that Howard McGhee, Al Killian and Willie Smith summoned (shoved) Prez on stage, hence the applause during the bass solo.

The piano player didn't have a solo because he had the intro.

Jeffrey Cierniak

Making the poor bass player take the haha. I can relate...pretty good bass solo for the time, though!

John Dodds

Pres kills it on this cut... the whole piece is a total classic!

Steve Hesh

Bird's solo starts out like he's being Lester on Alto. But then about halfway through it's like he goes,"And here's how I hear it!"
And that changed everything. It had to be stunning to be on that stage.

This is the highest level, this is the same perfect thinking as in his time with Bach, only in jazz. All of them are Atlants of jazz.

I've been looking for this for over a decade and I finally found it. Thank you God.
