This easy swinging version of a tune made popular by, among others, King of Swing Benny Goodman, finds me in a musical dialogue with recording artist/vocalist/songwriter and guitar-meister Rick Howard and the subtle, but memorable harmonies of well-known trumpet artist Bob Zottola. Rick adds his mellow voice to our duet, with Bob's trumpet "dialogue" adding an interesting dimension to our vocal harmonies.

We had fun recording this tune, from my CD: "Where Can I Go Without You?"


I used to be the apple of your eye, I had you with me every day,
But now whenever you are passing by, You're always looking the other way. It's little things like this that prompt me to say:
You turned the tables on me, And now I'm falling for you;
You turned the tables on me, I can't believe that it's true.
I always thought when you brought the lovely presents you bought why hadn't you brought me more.
But now if you'd come, I'd welcome anything from the five and ten cent store.

You used to call me the top. You put me up on a throne
You let me fall with a drop, and now I'm out on my own.
But after thinking it over and over, I got what was coming to me.
Just like the sting of a bee You turned the tables on me.
