Necessary Evil Lyrics

 

Necessary Evil (不可避免的灾难) - Ella Fitzgerald (埃拉·菲茨杰拉德)/Louis Armstrong (路易斯·阿姆斯特郎)

So I tried hard to be good

 

And do the things I should

 

I give up everything that I enjoyed

 

But if you slip a bit

 

And your heart says this is it

Thats a necessary evil my boy

 

All my friends say I'm a fool

 

And I won't break any rules

 

Why all the saintly virtues I employ

 

But if the slightest fling

Makes your soul begin to sing

 

That's a necessary evil my boy

 

We'll a man sometime has to sip a drink

 

And cast his eyes on a lovely shape

 

Then sometimes a wager desires

If a man says he don't

He's not a man he's a liar

So don't let yourself be sad

If what looks good is bad

Reach out accept the things that bring you joy

 

And so you feel inclined

It will help to keep in mind

Baby that's a necessary evil

 

For a man sometimes has to sip of the grape

 

Or cast his eye on a lovely shape

 

And then sometimes a wager desire

If a man says he don't

He's not a man he's a liar

So don't let yourself be sad

If what looks good is bad

I reach out accept the things

That bring you joy

 

A man has got to live

Even stealers make you give

That's a necessary evil

Absoultely necessary

 

 

A necessary evil my boy
