Embraceable You
Sarah Vaughan Lyrics


Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you

Just one look at you
My heart grows tipsy in me
You and you alone
Brings out the gypsy in me

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all, I want my arms about you

Don't be a naughty, naughty baby
Come to mama, come to mama do
My sweet embraceable you

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms about you

Don't be a naughty, naughty baby
Come to mama, come to mama do
My sweet embraceable you

Siriusly Sinatra has just played two consecutive songs, with “YOU” (the word we most want to hear) in their titles -- and they were made to segue into one another! Sarah Vaughn with EMBRACEABLE YOU and – I couldn't spot the singer, and confess I thought at first it was a woman's character voice, doing a fine jazz rendition of HOW ABOUT YOU. “Joe Pesci” says the scroll – so call it a young boy voice, but his vocal athleticism is superb! This IS the actor, right? And the musicians in his band are virtuosos! Both these songs are “new favorite versions” and are they at YouTube? Yes!

Ladies first – “Sassy” at her best. Somewhere I have a CD (an inside-cover insert from the Charles Pignone Sinatra Treasures book) in which Sinatra, in live performance in Vegas, tells his audience to go see Sarah, playing that night at another hotel. He spoke of her greatness and that Ms Vaugh is someone you owe it to yourself to see” (words to that effect). Singing the Gershwin's EMBRACEABLE YOU.

And the inimitable ('don't mess with me') Mr. Pesci and ALL OF ME. A bebop sax solo by someone great. Wonder who?

If I were forced to choose one vocalist's records to take with me to live on a desert island in the middle of nowhere, I wouldn't have to think about it:  It would be Sarah's. 

Harry Walker

+epf1961 AMEN!!!!

Sarah Vaughn version of this song  remains for me the benchmark version of this song In every respect. In 1954 she is at the pinnacle of her artistic power. The pianist Jim Jones is not one of the great pianist in the history of jazz but here he is eloquently understated and the perfect accompanist.

​@Charlie rum ole boi! I agree with you, great high note dynamic playing by Jones there and a well-engineered recording brings it out for sure

Charlie rum ole boi!

Actually, I think Jimmy Jones's solo in this song is genius. So understated and perfect. It gets me every time. He was a great accompanist.

Chris Buck

I totally agree
