She's a "Ella A Gal.

 

She's A 'Ella A Gal!  

She had a whale

 of a bottom
and a whale

 of a top,
with a ruby

red spout
that spewed

out hits nonstop.


People came

from all over
just to study

her girth,
and to dance to

her whale songs,
that she made

big on earth.

 


She was

bluesy and jazzy,
as she crossed

the sound waves
and her voice

had a bottom,
like you'd hear

inside caves.


She defined

the word broad,
in a much

wider way,
but her size

never mattered,
when the boys

came to play.


Never saw

her show live
but her legend

 I herald,
as the world

marks the passing
of Elephants-gerald.

 


  (Ella Fitzgerald)
