Just Squeeze Me

“Just Squeeze Me (But Please Don’t Tease Me)”. Now we really are moving into the world of Jazz with this song composed in 1941 by Duke Ellington, with lyrics by Lee Gaines.  It has become a Jazz standard, covered by a a host of artists, and now even by me.

This version was arranged by Australian jazz Guitarist George Golla and is a little different to normal as I recorded the 2 parts individually. It was a lot of fun to make and I hope you enjoy it. (Many thanks to Ian and Robyn-my good friends and students of Glenelg Guitar Studio who took care of the recording and technical aspects of recording the duet).

Several students have learned this piece and as well as being very enjoyable to play, it is also attainable for intermediate students. So let me know if you want to add it you your repertoire.

Cheers
Leigh
PS….. the lyrics are at the bottom of the page.

Want you to know I go for your squeezin’
Want you to know it really is pleasin’
Want you to know I ain’t for no teasin’

Treat me sweet and gentle when you say goodnight
Just squeeze me but please don’t tease me
I get sentimental when you hold me tight
Just squeeze me but please don’t tease me
Missing you since you went away
Singing the blues away each day
Counting the rights and waiting for you
I’m in the mood to let you know
I never knew I loved you so
Please say you love me too
When I get this feelin’ I’m in ecstasy
So squeeze me but please don’t tease me

Treat me sweet and gentle when you say goodnight
Just squeeze me but please don’t tease me
I get sentimental when you hold me tight
Just squeeze me but please don’t tease me
Missing you since you went away
Singing the blues away each day
Counting the rights and waiting for you
I’m in the mood to let you know
I never knew I loved you so
Please say you love me too
When I get this feelin’ I’m in ecstasy
So squeeze me but please don’t tease me

  1. Nice work Leigh. Maybe I will look at getting in a little jazz to broaden my repertoire, after I get a handle on the basics that is !!!

  2. Loved the piece “Just Squeeze me” very smooth.
    Too bad the bloke on the right hand side wasn’t as good looking as you Leigh.
    Cheers Lenore

  3. My 82 year old Pace Maker just had a short circuit! Shocking state of affairs. You Beauty, Leigh.
