Well you Needn’t – Cannonball Adderley (lyrics: Thelonious Monk)


You’re talkin’ so sweet well you needn’t
You say you won’t cheat well you needn’t
You’re tappin’ your feet well you needn’t
It’s over now, it’s over now
You’re dressin’ with class well you needn’t
You’re holdin’ your sass well you needn’t
You think you’re a gas well you needn’t
It’s over now, it’s over now
It’s over now, it’s over now
You’ve had your fun, so take a bow
You oughta know, you lost the glow, the beat is slow, the shadows grow,
the lights are low, it’s time to go, let’s close the show down
(Oh) You’re taking off weight well you needn’t
You’re looking just great well you needn’t
You’re settin’ the bait well you needn’t
It’s over now, it’s over now
You play enough game, well you needn’t
It’s more of the same, well you needn’t
You’re coming off lame, ell you needn’t
It’s over now, it’s over now
You’re bending my ear Well you needn’t
You’re calling me dear Well you needn’t
You’re acting sincere Well you needn’t
It’s over now, it’s over now
It’s over now, it’s over now
Don’t wanna see Don’t need a row
You had you’re day Your matinee
You had to stray You know they say
You gonna play You gotta face
So find a way out
You say that you try Well you needn’t
You say you won’t lie Well you needn’t
You’re starting to cry Well you needn’t
It’s over now It’s over now
(repeat all then…)
It’s over now,
it’s over now
It’s over now,
it’s over now
It’s over now, it’s over!

Thelonious Monk Blue Note Sessions (Well you Needn’t)

In Album, Well You Needn't on February 10, 2009 at 11:07 am

Jazz pianist Thelonious Monk’s first sessions as a bandleader were recorded between 1947 and 1952, and released on Blue Note records as a series of 78 RPM singles. These singles were then compiled in later years–with additional performances from the sessions–into long-playing album formats. As Monk’s reputation and fame grew, the sessions were recompiled again and again into more complete configurations. This article details various releases of these sessions.
