AND THE MELODY STILL LINGERS ON (NIGHT IN TUNISIA) (Music : Dizzy Gillespie / Lyrics : Chaka Khan) Chaka Khan A long time ago in the 40's Dizzy and Bird gave us this song They called it "A Night In Tunisia"; And the melody still lingers on It was new and very strange Blew the squares right off the stage Few could play along But the melody still lingers on Max and Miles to name just two Together they grew The music was young and strong And the melody still lingers on They paved the way for generations From Coltrane to Stevie No one could stop the winds of change Without them where'd we be? The Duke and the Prez were there before The past you can't ignore The torch is lit, we'll keep the flame And the melody remains the same In the 40's A night in tunisia In the 40's A night in tunisia In the 40's A night in tunisia In the 40's A night in tunisia (Contributed by Katy - June 2003)
