CORN PICKIN' Harry Warren (m) Johnny Mercer (l) 1939 as rec by Maxine Sullivan w Claude Thornhill & his Orch March 20th 1939 New York also rec by Bea Wain w Larry Clinton & his Orch To gain entry into any New York club, You don't have to have a million or two! In our honky tonks, right up to the Stork Club, The one thing they want is somebody who can do; Corn pickin', I'm crazy 'bout pickin', There ain't any trick in pickin'! Corn pickin', Just shuffle a few feet, By makin' your two feet slew feet! You reach out and you grab the girl and you hold her, You bend down and grab an ear from the stork. You raise up and throw it over your shoulder, And then you sashay round her and start in to walk. I'm talkin' 'bout corn pickin', It's better than chicken, So hurry and pick that corn! You reach out and you get your girl and you hold her, You bend down and grab an ear from the stork. You raise up and throw it over your shoulder, Mm-mm, then you sashay round her and start in to walk. I'm talkin' 'bout corn pickin', It's better than chicken, So hurry and pick that corn! Corn Pickin'! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2012)
