CHICAGO STYLE From the film "Road To Bali" (1952) (Johnny Burke / Jimmy Van Heusen) Bob Hope & Bing Crosby - 1952 Also recorded by: Rosemary Clooney; Anita Gravine; Rebecca Kilgore. Bing: Look out! Bob: You ready for this? Who's that comin' down the thoroughfare The sunshine flashin' on his ring Bowin' left and right and here and there That's Chester, the trombone king He gets his shirts straight from Paris Cigarettes from the Nile He tallks like a 'eyebrow', but he plays Chicago style He gets his shoes made in London And they're real crocodile But he plays trombone...Chicago style Bob: And he sometimes plays sweet Bing: Hup-toodle-oodle-oodle-dee-ooo Both: But sweet or hot, he's always got That real gut-bucket beat He's got a neat Latin moustache And the girls love his smile But he plays trombone...Chicago style A trombone made in Newark Played in Chicago style (Instrumental Break) Chicago style (Instrumental Break) Chicago style (Instrumental Break) BING: He gets his neckties from Naples And his socks from Argyle Speaks Oxford English, but he plays Chicago style BING: Wears a stickpin from Rio, are you listenin' You can see it for a mile But he plays trombone...Chicago style Bob: And he sometimes plays sweet Bing: Uncle Jake's weary blues Both: But sweet or hot, he's always got That real gut-bucket beat He likes New York for the Opera And gets two on the aisle But he plays trombone...Chicago style A trombone made in Newark Played in Chicago style Bing: Yes sir Bob: Hey-hey Both: A trombone played Chicago style (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2003)
