Miles Davis – Now's The Time lyrics

(charlie parker tune: Eddie Jefferson arrangement)

Verse I

I never thought you'd be, so awfully close to me.

Until I heard the message that after set me free.

That made me want to linger, want to hang around.

Better understanding of these different kind of sounds.

Back in '42, Bird came to New York and blew, my but he blew...

Verse ii

Come reminesce with me, and think about the Bird.

Remember everything he did and all the things you heard.

Oh, don't it just amaze ya, gets ya down inside...

To think of how he had to live, then the way he died.

Life was so unkind, cause now would have been his time.... Now was his time.
