Fitzgerald, Ella - Hernando's Hideaway Lyrics



I know a dark, secluded place
A place where no one knows your face!
A glass of wine, a fast embrace
It's called Hernando's Hideaway, a-way!

All you see are silhouettes
And all you hear are castanets
And no one cares how late it gets
Not at Hernando's hideaway, a-way!

At the Golden Finger Bowl or anyplace you go
You will meet your Uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you go to the spot that I am thinking of
You will be free to gaze at me and talk of love
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike and match and you will know
You're in Hernando's hideaway, a-way!

I know a dark, secluded place
A place where no one ever knows your face!
Wine is fine with a fast embrace
Hernando's Hideaway -away!

At the Golden Finger Bowl or anyplace you go
You will meet your Uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you go to the spot that I am thinking of
You will be free to gaze at me and talk of love
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike and match and you will know
You're in Hernando's hideaway!

Fitzgerald, Ella Hernando's Hideaway Comments
  1. Joselito Domingo

    Danceable for slow foxtrot...

    Carrie Heidbrier

    The original is really more of a tango if you weren't aware

  2. Robert Price

    A gorgeous treatment of a film favourite of mine. I did see Ella at the Royal Festival Hall some time back,  (I believe it was in the seventies),  and I was enthralled. Thanks for all the joy you brought to us....

  3. Robert Price

    A great version with intelligent invention.

  4. Mags

    Our dance studio is doing a competition dance to this song

    Well past now, but how did you get on? Was it this version that switches rhythms back and fore from tango to jazz that you used, or did you do it to an all tango rhythm which the song originally had?

  5. Sarah Cesar

    superb...

  6. Morgan Cox

    Love this song

  7. Charlie Cope

    Love it

  8. Aurelas Rainsong

    Very nice recording of this song!

  9. w0nd3r w4ll

    Still one of my all-time favorite songs since 2002, & definitely the #1 top version of this song, IMHO... I just love how Ella sings it, and I love how the song switches back & forth between a Latin beat & a jazz-swing beat.Yep, I'll never get sick of this song. :D
