I'M JUST A JITTERBUG Jerry Livingston / Mack David 1938 as rec by Ella fitzgerald w Chick Webb & his Orch May 2nd 1938 New York I'm just a jitterbug, A happy jitterbug, A little jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive. I'm not a corny hick, (scat) I know a real hot lick, (scat) 'Cause I'm a jitterbug, mighty glad that I'm alive! Give me a solid ascender, Not just an elbow bender! Don't want no old time jazz, No razzamataz, just swing! 'Cause I'm just a jitterbug, A happy jitterbug, A little jitter jitter jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive. The trumpet's goin' crazy, Say, he is a torrid cat! He sure can swing a-plenty When he's blowin' through his hat! Just listen to that gentleman, He's gettin' awful licks! Sure, when that baby goes to town He sure is mighty slick! And now, a-listen folks and you will hear The drummer of the band; Now I know that he's a drummer By that drumstick in his hand! So gather round me, all you cats, Let each man di his part; Come on, you leader, beat it all, The jammin's gonna start! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2011)
