Song Lyric Sunday/Song of the Day: Ella Fitzgerald, “Here In My Arms”

Jim’s been on a body thing the last couple of weeks. Last week it was face stuff, this week it’s limb stuff, "arms, elbows, knees, legs." Got a shortie here today: Ella Fitzgerald’s "Here In My Arms." It was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1925 for the musical Dearest Enemy, and it’s become a standard. This is from her album Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Rodgers & Hart Songbook.

The lyrics, courtesy of AZLyrics:

Here in my arms it’s adorable!
It’s deplorable
That you were never there.

When little lips are so kissable
It’s permissible
For me to ask my share.

Next to my heart it is ever so lonely.
I’m holding only air.

While here in my arms it’s adorable!
It’s deplorable
That you were never there.

That’s Song Lyric Sunday (and Song of the Day) for December 8, 2019.
