Lush Life Sheet Music Lyrics Nat King Cole
I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life
From jazz and cocktails
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distingue traces
That used to be there, you could see where they’d been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve o’clock tales
Then you came along with your siren of song
To tempt me to madness
I thought for a while that your poignant smile
Was tinged with the sadness
of a great love for me
Ah yes, I was wrong
I was wrong
Life is lonely again
And only last year
Everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
A troughful of hearts
Could only be a bore
A week in Paris will ease the bite of it
All I care is to smile in spite of it
I’ll forget you, I will
While yet you are still
Burning inside my brain
Romance is mush
Stifling those who strive
I’ll live a lush life
In some small dive
And there I’ll be
While I rot
With the rest of those
Whose lives are lonely, too
