Stompin’ At The Savoy

Writer(s):
From the DVD video “Sinatra: A Man And His Music 1” track 20
With Ella Fitgerald

These are the real lyrics, as originally sung by Ella Fitzgerald:
Savoy, the home of sweet romance,
Savoy, it wins you at a glance,
Savoy, gives happy feet a chance to dance.
Your form, just like a clinging vine,
Your lips, so warm and sweet as wine,
Your cheeks, so soft and close to mine, divine.
How my heart is singing while the band is swinging,
Never tired of rompin’, and stompin ‘with you, at the Savoy,
What joy! A perfect holiday,
Savoy, where we can glide and sway,
Savoy, they let me stomp away,
With you..

These are the lyrics sung by Frank and Ella, playing around the lyrics and melody:
Savoy, the home of sweet romance,
Savoy, it wins you at a glance,
Savoy, gives happy old feet a dance.
Savoy, each note as warm as wine
And my eyes, I love the way they shine
You rest, I’ll grab another line
That’s fine, that’s fine
How my heart is swaying, baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
How my heart is swaying, while the band is playing
I’ll never tire of rompin’ and stompin with you at the Savoy.
Savoy, a perfect holiday
Savoy, where we can dance and sway
I got a great part, what joy,
Until the break of day, with you.
Ella goes into her scat routine
