BIRDLAND Joe Zawinul & Jon Hendricks Five thousand light years from Birdland But I'm still preachin' the rhythm Long gone up-tight years from Birdland And I'm still teachin' it with 'em Years from the land of the bird, And I'm still feeling the spirit Five thousand light years from Birdland But I know people can hear it bird named it, bird made it, bird heard it, then played it Well-stated! Birdland, it happened down in Birdland In the middle of that hub I remember one jazz club Where we went to pat feet Down on fifty-second street Everybody heard that word That they named it after Bird Where the rhythm swooped and swirled The jazz corner of the world And the cats they gigged in there Were beyond compare Birdland - I'm singing Birdland Birdland Birdland - Ol' swingin' Birdland Hey, man, the music really turns you on! Y' turn me on, Really y' turn me aroun' 'N turn me on Down them stairs, lose them cares where? Down in Birdland Total swing, bop was king there Down in Birdland Bird would cook, Max would look where? Down in Birdland Miles came through, 'Trane came too there Down in Birdland Baise blew, Blakey too where? Down in Birdland Cannonball played that hall there Down in Birdland Yeah ---- There may never be nothin' such as that No More - No More Down in Birdland, that's where it was at I know I know Back in them days bop was ridin' high Hello! 'n goodbye! How well those cats remember Their first Birdland gig To play in Birdland is an honor we still dig Yeah --- that club was like - In another world, sure enough - Yeah, baby All o' the cats had the cookin' on People just sat an' they was steady loookin on Then Bird - he came 'n spread the word - Birdland Yes, indeed he did Yes, indeed he did Yes, indeed he did Yes he did, Parker played at Birdland Yes, he really did Yes, indeed he really did Yes, he really did Told the truth way down in Birdland Yes, indeed, he did, Charlie Parker played in Birdland Yes indeed, he really did Charlie Parker played in Birdland bird named it, bird made it, bird heard it, then played it Well-stated! Birdland, it happened down in Birdland Everybody dug that beat Everybody stomped their feet Everybody digs be-bop An' they'll never stop Down them stairs, lose them cares where? Down in Birdland Total swing, bop was king there Down in Birdland Bird would cook, Max would look where? Down in Birdland Miles came through, 'Trane came too there Down in Birdland Baise blew, Blakey too where? Down in Birdland Cannonball played that hall there Down in Birdland Down them stairs, lose them cares where? Down in Birdland Total swing, bop was king there Down in Birdland Bird would cook, Max would look where? Down in Birdland Miles came through, 'Trane came too there Down in Birdland Baise blew, Blakey too where? Down in Birdland Cannonball played that hall there Down in Birdland Come in pairs down them stairs, lose y' cares Them that dares - gits it! Pay the gate, don't be late It's a date! Whattay' know If y' dig, then you'll dig it's a groove Quite a groove, 'cause y' t' move Come in twos, pay your dues, What can you lose? Just your blues! So lose them! The band swingin' one and all and what a ball Yeah! Music is good, music is better than good, pretty good Very nice - Really very good, things are bein' like they should very good - very good - very good All y' gotta do it lend an ear An' listen to it Then y' dig a little sooner than soon You'll be diggin' everything - diggin all the music What a ball! How y' gonna figure out A way to bring it all about amid a Lot of other music on the set and on the scene Know what I mean? How y' gonna separate the music from the scene 'Gonna have t' keep the memory clean Y' gonna hear a lotta sound - a lotta soun'
