Ella Fitzgerald Love For Sale Lyrics

Last updated: 12/27/2010 10:00:00 AM

When the only sound in the empty street,
Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet
That belong to a lonesome cop
I open shop.
When the moon so long has been gazing down
On the wayward ways of this wayward town.
That her smile becomes a smirk,
I go to work.

Love for sale,
Appetising young love for sale.
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled,
Love that's only slightly soiled,
Love for sale.
Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who's prepared to pay the price,
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale
Let the poets pipe of love
in their childish way,
I know every type of love
Better far than they.
If you want the thrill of love,
I've been through the mill of love;
Old love, new love
Every love but true love
Love for sale.

Appetising young love for sale.
If you want to buy my wares.
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale.
Love for sale.

A wonderful but tragic song about a girl (or boy) whose life has led them to one of prostitution. They give their "love" in exchange for the cold felt inside. This song gives a wonderful look into the psychology of someone for whom love has become nothing more than a job done daily. So many artist have done this song justice that it will continue to live on for generations to come.
