Thelonious
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?
Looks like the ending
Unless I could have
One more chance to prove
Dear
My life's a wreck
You're making
You know that I'm yours
For just the taking
I'd gladly surrender
Body and soul

Looks like YouTube doesn't let me directly paste a URL from a different site. So.. type this in a Google search: Thelonious Monk's compositions - LeadSheetMusic. One of your first results will be a pdf link for leadsheetmusic, for a collection of Monk tunes. Go there and the song Thelonious is around Page 62! Cheers.

23 years before I was born. Exactly.

Great tune. Everyone, for Sheets from it, try to get Steve Cardenas's book about loads of TM tunes, it's in there, I have it. ;)

My favorite of his albums

Italblessings

Love this album, and not just because of the cover. Favourite Monk album is 'Something in Blue' and the track of the same name.

You're right... and.... he's also smoking a cigarette and has dynamite at his feet. Not to forget the lusty female freedom fighter (also totin' gun) in the background.
