When I hear a band blowin' basie I can count on losing my cool Take me where the rhythm is racy Let me be a dancin' fool
Some prefer the caf? europa Sipping dubonnet on a stool Me, I get my kicks at the copa That's where i'm a dancin' fool I'll show you some moves Smooth as satin And others they don't teach in school When that crooner starts in to scattin' Just give me a chance an' My tuxedo pants an' Presto! I'm a dancin' fool
When those trumpets blare, man I ain't got a care man I'm like fred astaire, man Cool!
