I Said No

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Whisper Not (1966).

There I stood in her doorway so boldly
And I whispered a pleasure she'd miss!
Though at first she refused very coldly
How long can a lady resist?
How long can a lady resist?

I said "Now?", she said "Well!"
I said "Ah, this is swell!"
And the way she looked at me was a crime!
And at last, you can guess
She said "Yes yes yes yes yes!"
Words she really meant to say all the time!

I said "No!", he said "Please!"
I said "No!", he said "Please!"
I said "No!", he said "Please, pretty baby!"

I said "No!", he said "Why?"
I said "No!", he said "Why?"
I said "No!", he said "Try!"
I said "Maybe!"

He said "Now?", I said "Well!"
He said "Ah, this is swell
And you'll never know how much it will mean
So at last, I confess!"
I said "Yes yes yes yes yes!"
That's how I subscribed to Liberty magazine!

Now I subscribed to the magazine
And fell in love with a guy
But he didn't dig me, he had no eyes
And now I really got to try

He said "No!", I said "Please!"
He said "No!", I said "Please!"
He said "No!", I said "Come on baby!"

He said "No!", I said "Why?"
He said "No!", I said "Why?"
He said "No!", I said "Try!"
He said "Oh well, Maybe!"

He said "Now?", I said "Well!"
He said "Ah, this is swell
And the moonlight in his was sublime
And you'll never know how much it will mean
So at last, confess!"
I said "Yes yes yes yes yes!"
That's how I subscribed to Esquire
And a Rogan and Stagger, Cavalier, Field and Stream, now let me see oh yes, I forgot one
That's how I subscribed to Playboy magazine
