I'M LOOKING FOR A GUY WHO PLAYS ALTO AND BARITONE, DOUBLES ON CLARINET AND WEARS A SIZE 37 SUIT Ozzie Nelson Ozzie Nelson, RubyAnne Stevens and the Ozzie Nelson Orchestra While walking down the street I chanced to meet A friend of mine who leads a band. He looked a bit perplexed, In fact, I'd say completely vexed, And when I tell what was wrong, you'll understand. I said "My friend, you're looking Rather on the worried side." He heaved a heavy sigh and then replied: "I'm looking for a guy who plays alto and baritone And doubles on a clarinet and wears a size 37 suit. Of course we'd expect him to do some arranging And perhaps a bit of copying And play some oboe and some flute. He may sing the vocals just in case we get stuck. Oh yes, and he's guy who shines the shoes And drives the truck. I'm looking for a guy who plays alto and baritone And doubles on a clarinet and wears a size 37 suit." It happened in Gary, Indiana; We were playing a one-night stand ... As Ozzie tapped off Number 3, A gal stepped up and said to me: "I'd like a good look at the members of your band. I'm looking for a certain young musician; I met him at a dance a year ago. I don't recall if he was with BG or Tommy D., But I'll tell you all about him so you know. I'm looking for a guy who plays alto and baritone And doubles on a clarinet and wears a size 37 suit. I can't find him listed in Downbeat, Or Metronome, Billboard or Variety, But oh, my goodness, was he cute. I don't remember if his hair was dark or light, 'Cause he didn't take his hat off When he kissed me goodnight. I'm looking for a guy who plays alto and baritone And doubles on a clarinet and wears a size 37 suit." (Contributed by Lou Rugani - The Music of the Stars (WLIP) - September 2012)
