​Fairy Tales

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the box set Ella: The Legendary Decca Recordings (1938) and on the album Ella & Friends (1996).

Fairy tales were the tales that you told me
Fairy tales made me happy as I could be
For I had been dreaming of some day
But now somehow it's all faded away

Fairy tales, like a child I believed you
Fairy tales, none of them came true
But sometimes in my dreams, I can hear you, it seems
Telling me the same old fairy tales

Oh, fairy tales were the tales that you told me
Fairy tales made me happy as I could be
For I had been dreaming of some day
But now somehow it's all faded away

Fairy tales, like a child I believed you
Fairy tales, none of them came true
But sometimes in my dreams, I can hear you, it seems
Telling me the same old fairy tales

Fairy tales, like a child I believed you
Fairy tales, none of them came true
But sometimes in my dreams, I can hear you, it seems
Telling me
(Why must you keep on telling me)
The same old fairy tales
