La la la" falsetto scat singing)

They talk about the bass man, he had success
Oh what they say about him, I couldn't care less
But I'm a tenor man & a-don't you forget
That I have got the sound that the kids love best

CHORUS:
(over "la la la" falsetto scat singing):
(Listen to the tenor man, listen to the tenor man
Listen to the tenor man, ah)

They all come around & we hit the town
They never start screamin' till they hear this sound
Now I don't care about a "boom boom boom"
They don't start to swoon till they hear me croon

(chorus)

They talk about tenors day & night
Don't care if the sound is wrong or right
All I have to do is open my mouth
Everybody wants to jump & shout

(instrumental)

Now, Mr. Bass Man, before you go
Let me hear you "boom boom" just once more
(low, trilling "boom boom" scat singing)
(spoken): Together now!

(repeat chorus & fade
