Let's Take A Walk Around The Block 歌詞

Let's Take A Walk Around The Block - Ella Fitzgerald

I never traveled further north than old van courtland park

And never further south than the aquarium

I've seen the charm of jersey city but first let me remark

I saw it from the empire state solarium

But we've been putting nickels in the postal savings bank

And when those nickels pile up we can toddle off in swank

And I don't mean an ordinary cook's tour

I mean a cabin de-luxe tour

Someday we'll go places

New lands and new faces

The day we quit punching the clock

The future looks pleasant

But at present

Let's take a walk around the block

You're just the companion

 

I want at grand canyon

For throwing old blades down the rock

The money we have will go for travel

Meantime let's walk around the block

Gangway we'll begin

When our ship comes in

I'll sit on your lap

All over the map

To london in may time

To venice in play time

To paris in time for a frock

To boston in bean time

Darling meantime

Let's take a walk around the block

 

In winter at christmas

We'll visit the isthmus

And see how they lock up a lock

And then in caracas on a jackass

We'll take a ride around the block

We'll keep to our promise

To visit st thomas

And then at jamaica we'll dock

The prospect is thrilling

Still I am willing

Just now to talk around the block

On ward to cathay

Then to mandalay

Boom on to bangkok

P'r'aps vladivostok

We'll send the folks cables

Accumulate labels

 

Buy souvenirs till we're in hock

But since we are flat in old manhattan

Let's take a walk around the block
