You Are Too Beautiful
Thelonious Monk Lyrics


You are too beautiful, my dear, to be true
And I am a fool for beauty
Fooled by a feeling that because I have found you
I could have bound you too

You are too beautiful for one man alone
For one lucky fool to be with
When there are other men
With eyes of their own to see with
Love does not stand sharing
Not if one cares
Have you been comparing
My every kiss with theirs

If, on the other hand, I'm faithful to you
It's not through a sense of duty
You are too beautiful
And I am a fool for beauty

Love does not stand sharing
Not if one cares
Have you been comparing
My every kiss with theirs

If, on the other hand, I'm faithful to you
It's not through a sense of duty
You are too beautiful
And I am a fool for beauty

Thelonious Monk knew how life could be gentle and harsh at the same time...and somehow conveys it through the piano. Real talent.

Yusef Endure

He was a one of kind. What a genius!

Jay Young

Yes, Monk, both you and your music are just that, too beautiful!

He was never lost after all...

Jay Winfield

Master T-Monk. That legendary unique sound.

Americo Gomez

Thelonious Monk... an incredible interpretation of a beautiful song.
It bring me memories of "Hannah and Her Sisters" (where it is played on the piano).
This is sublime...
