Angel Eyes

from by Anna Rodriguez



I heard this song for the first time on "The Intimate Ella" CD which is one of (my opinion) her best albums ever. So if you hear some Ella influences in this track, don't be surprised. In the lyrics below I changed them to what I sang (rephrased a few sentences here and there) For the correct lyrics you can check online :)


Try to think that love's not around
But it's uncomfortably near
My old heart ain't gaining no ground
Because my angel eyes ain't here

Angel eyes, that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love's misspent
Misspent with angel eyes tonight

So drink up all you people
Order anything you see
Have fun you happy people
The drinks and the laughs are on me

Pardon me but I've got to run
Cos the fact's uncommonly clear
I've got to find who is now number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here
Oh why my angel eyes, why he ain't here
Why my angel eyes ain't here....
