Way backtake a lookshe would cook
When they were stompin’ at the savoy
She would blowand they would dancedon’t you know ?
It was an uptown kind a show

Cool notes and melodiesharmonies
She sang the song of the universe
She can make a joyful noise up to heaven
And call the angels down to the earth

From jazzto swingto be-bop
She kept the spirit alive
For bodukedizzyand miles
She spoke her mind
She’s ellamental to the art
She spoke her mind
She’s ellamental to the art

Too hotuntil the dawn she sang on
When joints were jumpin’ and jive was in
Bodies movin’ back and forth to the rhythm
Ever since ella first did her thing

From jazzto swing to be-bop
She brought emotions and moves
She kept the spirit alive.
She spoke her mind

Act like ya knowoh!
Was it the smooth tones that was so much like butter
Oh ella was singin’ just like no other singer
Cause you know I be the funky bringer of the new style
Because I be the wild child.
Listenin’ to hip-hoplistening to be-bop and jazz
Ella made you move that ass
Sensation for the peopleinsperation for the sisters and brothers
Smooth jazz for the midnight lovers
Savoy was the spot for shakin’ on your rump and
Ella made it hoppin’
Got the joint jumpin’remembering you ’til the dawn
Because ella your memory goes on

She spoke her mind (yeah...and it just don’t stop)
She’s ellamental to the art (the memory goes on and on...’cause it just don’t stop)
She spoke her mind (...yeah..jazz to the bebop)
She’s ellamental to the art
She spoke her mind..(yeah...much love...)
She spoke her mind...
