​You Took Advantage of Me

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Rodgers & Hart Songbook (1956).

When a girl has the heart of a mother
It must go to someone of course
It can't be a sister or a brother
And so I love my horse

But horses are frequently silly
Mine ran from the beach of Okhala
And left me alone for a filly
So I picked you up

I'm a sentimental sap, that's all
What's the use of trying not to fall?
I have no will, you've made your kill
'Cause you took advantage of me!

I'm just like an apple on a bough
And you're gonna shake me down somehow
So, what's the use,
You've cooked my goose
'Cause you took advantage of me!

I'm so hot and bothered that I don't know
My elbow from my ear
I suffer something awful each time you go
And much worse when you're near

Here I am with all my bridges burned
Just a babe in arms where you're concerned
So lock the doors and call me yours
'Cause you took advantage of me.
