"Ev'rything I've Got" is a show tune from the Rodgers and Hart musical By Jupiter (1942), in which it was introduced by Ray Bolger and Benay Venuta.

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 -- June 15, 1996), also known as the "First Lady of Song" and "Lady Ella," was an American jazz and song vocalist. With a vocal range spanning three octaves (Db3 to Db6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. She is considered to be a notable interpreter of the Great American Songbook.

Ella's accompanied by Buddy Bregman & His Orchestra. Recorded February 7, 1956, Capitol Studios, Hollywood, CA. (Verve Records)

I have eyes for you to give you dirty looks
I have words that do not come from children's books
There's a trick with a knife I'm learning to do
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you
I've a powerful anesthesia in my fist
And the perfect wrist to give your neck a twist
There are hammerlock holds
I've mastered a few
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you

Share for share, share alike
You get struck each time I strike
You for me, me for me
I'll give you plenty of nothing
I'm not yours for better but for worse
And I've learned to give the well-known witches' curse
I've a terrible tongue, a temper for two
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you

I have eyes for you to give you dirty looks
I have words that do not come from children's books
There's a trick with a knife I'm learning to do
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you
I've a powerful anesthesia in my fist
And the perfect wrist to give your neck a twist
There are hammerlock holds
I've mastered a few
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you

Share for share, share alike
You get struck each time I strike
You for me, me for me
I'll give you plenty of nothing
I'm not yours for better but for worse
And I've learned to give the well-known witches' curse
I've a terrible tongue, a temper for two
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you

Share for share, share alike
You get struck each time I strike
You for me, me for me
I'll give you plenty of nothing
I'm not yours for better but for worse
And I've learned to give the well-known witches' curse
I've a terrible tongue, a temper for two
And ev'rything I've got belongs to you
