Body and Soul
Thelonious Monk Lyrics


My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul
I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for the very taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

Monk once said, I can player like them other cats, but they can't play like me. How true.

Since 1982, I have been an over-the-top, deeply committed disciple of Thelonious' gifts to the world's ears.  I have traveled extensively for most of my 50+years on earth, and there is no single musician/composer/visionary that has touched my inner core more than Thelonious.  Of all of the masterpieces I've memorized from him, this single recording is my all time favorite.  I love this iconic tune, the stature that is has in the music world and the way that Thelonious brings it to us.  Thank you, Thelonious Sphere Monk...especially for the chord at 3:33...it tells us everything we need to know about how deep you can go.

I don't care what you call it, Monk was avant-garde.

Personally, I like Monk more than Bill Evans.

I've looked at a ton of YouTube clips, but yours is the first I've seen do this. Great!
