Kenny Burrell
Ella's Song

Dear Ella
Our Special First Lady of Song
You gave your best for so long
This is true

Dear Ella we're all so glad
you answered the call
For it is certain that your music
will always stand tall
your blessing to all

Dear Ella
The soul in your songs
and heart we can feel
such feeling, emotion
such beauty of phrase
each time
You brought joy to so many
with sounds of the music sublime

You started so early and
made it so fun
with hard work and talent
You became number one

With your bearing so regal
Your voice strong and true
You gave us a standard
met only by a few

Dear Ella
We'll always remember
your love and good will
We treasure the place
in our hearts that you fill

We love you
We thank you
for all that you are our hearts
You are a true

Shining star...

Dear Ella.
