The Tender Trap

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

You see a pair of laughing eyes
And suddenly your sighing sighs
You're thinking nothings wrong
You string along, boy, then snap
Those eyes, those sighs, they're part of the tender trap

You're hand in hand beneath the trees
And soon there's music in the breeze
You're acting kind of smart
Until your heart just goes wap
Those trees, that breeze, they're part of the tender trap

Some starry night
When his kisses make you tingle
He'll hold you tight
And you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot, that's just a dot on the map

You wonder how it all came about
It's too late now there's no gettin' out
You fell in love and love is the tender trap

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot that's just a dot on the map

You wonder how it all came about
It's too late now there's no gettin' out
You fell in love and love is the tender trap

Is the tender trap
