JITTERBUG, THE recorded for 1939 film "The Wizard Of Oz" but not used (Harold Arlen (m) E Y "Yip" Harburg (l) 1939) Judy Garland & The Ken Darby Vocal Trio with Victor Young & his Orchestra [Dorothy] Did you hear what I just heard? [Lion] That noise don't come from an ordinary bird! [Dorothy] It may be just a cricket, or a critter in the trees. [Tin Man] It's giving me the jitters in the joints around the knees! [Scarecrow] I think I see a jijikin, he's fuzzy and he's furry, I haven't got a brain but I think I ought to worry! [Tin Man] I haven't got a heart, but I've got a palpitation! [Lion} As monarch of the forest, I don't like the situation! [Dorothy] Are you gonna stand around and let him fill us full of horror? [Lion} I'd like to roar him down, but I think I've lost my roar! [Tin Man] It's a whosis! [Scarecrow} It's a whosis? [Lion] It's a whatsis! [Scarecrow] It's a whatsis? [Tin Man] Who's 'ere? [Scarecrow] Who's there? [Lion] Who's there? [all three] Who's there? [Dorothy] Who's that hiding in the treetops? It's that rascal, the jitterbug! Should you catch him buzzin' round you, Keep away from the jitterbug! Oh, the bees in the breeze And the bats in the trees Have a terrible horrible buzz! But the bees in the breeze And the bats in the trees Couldn't do what the jitterbug does! So be careful of that rascal, Keep away from the jitterbug, The jitterbug! Oh the jitter, oh the bug, Oh, the jitterbug! (scat) In the twitter, in the throes, Oh, the critter's got me Dancin' on a thousand toes, There she blows! Hey,who's that hiding in the treetops? It's that rascal, the jitterbug! Should you catch him buzzin' round you, Keep away from the jitterbug! Oh, the bats and the bees And the breeze in the trees Have a terrible horrible buzz! But the bees in the breeze And the bats in the trees Couldn't do what the jitterbug does! So be careful of that rascal, Keep away from the jitterbug, The jitterbug, The jitterbug!
