A Ghost Of A Chance
Thelonious Monk Lyrics

I need your love so badly, I love you, oh, so madly
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you!
I thought at last I'd found you, but other lovers surround you
And "I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you!"
If you'd surrender just for a tender kiss or two
You might discover, that I'm the lover meant for you
And I'd be true, but what's the good of scheming
I know I must be dreaming

Written by: Bing Crosby, Ned Washington, Victor Popular Young

This is one of my favorite songs and I love Monk's version because he roughens up the edges and takes away the smoothness (i.e., Frank Sinatra's, Bing Crosby's and even Etta James' versions are very smooth and slick). Monks chords underline the pain that comes with not having a ghost of a chance. Very nice.

layoutzz Etta James’s version off her Mystery Lady cd is the absolute best


Nobody can say a word after hearing Monk play, and there's seldom even 1 dislike on a video of his...a unique voice that was introverted it's hard to understand what he tries to tell us, genius!


I'd like to listen to this guy jamming with Eric Satie.


Well, folks . . . even if you're not overly fond of his interpretation, after listening you damn well know that your ears have been stretched out of their usual position, and, by itself, maybe that's a good thing . . . Gary in Arizona
