Down in the Depths

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Loves Cole (1972).

With a million neon rainbows burning below me
And a million blazing taxis raising a roar
Here I sit, above the town
In my pet-palliated gown
Down in the depths
Of the ninetieth floor

While the crowds in all the nightclubs punish the parquet
And the bars are packed with couples calling for more
I'm deserted and depressed
In my regal-eagle nest
Down in the depths
Of the ninetieth floor

When the only one you wanted wants another
What's the use of swank and cash in the bank galore?
Why, even the janitor's wife
Has a perfectly good love life
And here I am, facing tomorrow
Alone in my sorrow
Down in the depths
Of the ninetieth floor
