embraceable you

'I love all the many charms about you
above all i want my arms about
Don't be a naughty baby...
come to papa come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you...'

written by george (music) and ira (lyrics) gershwin in 1928. all the greats, including billy holiday (grammy hall of fame version) have recorded this song.
