As Long as I Live

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Swings Lightly (1958) and on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Harold Arlen Song Book (1961).

Maybe I can't live to love you as long as I want to
Life isn't long enough baby, but I can love you as long as I live

Maybe I can't give you diamonds and things like I want to
But I can promise you, baby, I'm gonna want to as long as I live

I never cared, but now I'm scared, I won't live long enough
That's why I wear my rubbers when it rains and eat an apple every day then see
The doctor anyway

What if I can't live to love you as long as I want to
Long as I promise you, baby, I'm gonna love you as long I live

I'll even wear long underwear, when winter breezes blow
I'm gonna take good care of me because, a sneeze or two might mean the flu
And that would never never do

What if I can't live to love you as long as I want to
Long as I promise you, baby, I'm gonna love you as long I live
