And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Ultimate Ella Fitzgerald (1949) and on the album 1941-44 (1997).

He was such a handsome sailor, how he tossed the old magoo
He told her that he loved her, and a thousand others too
And then he bought a diamond, and some expensive furs
But alas, alack! Like a stab in the back, she found they wasn't hers

And her tears flowed like wine, yes, her tears flowed like wine
She's a real sad tomato, she's a busted valentine
Knows her momma done told her, that the man is darn unkind

But the guy got jilted, and her hopes were rose once more
So she went to beauty parlours, and took facials by the score
And when he came to see her, she smiled the evening through
Till he said girl friend, get your money back, .... is the name for you

And her tears flowed like wine, yes, her tears flowed like wine
She's a real sad tomato, she's a busted valentine
Knows her momma done told her, that the man is darn unkind

She caught him in a restaurant, about to order when
She said come home to dinner, don't you want some beans again
That ain't ... with the Navy, that sailor said that he
So then she laid her pistol down, had to let the guy go free

And her tears flowed like wine, yes, her tears flowed like wine
She's a real sad tomato, she's a busted valentine
Knows her momma done told her, that the man is darn unkind

She's a real sad tomato, and her tears flowed like wine
