JUST A SIMPLE MELODY (Sammy Cahn / Saul Chaplin) Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. (Instr.) - 1938 Chick Webb & His Orch. (vocal: Ella Fitzgerald) - 1938 The Andrews Sisters - 1938 You're just a simple melody Designed to haunt your memory It's bound to get you instantly It sneaks up on you unaware Before you even know it's there You're swaying to its catchy air Dancing with your favourite thrill He will hold you closer still And suddenly you both agree That dancing can be heavenly You're just a simple melody It's just a simple thing And it starts with a major swing It's a tune that'll make you sing And sing and sing and sing First the southpaw flow Bo-bo-bo-bo-bo-bo Then it starts to go Tah-dah-rah-dah, deh-dah-dah-lad-lah-dah-dah Rocks you to-and-fro Dah-dah-deh-dah-dah, dee-dah-dah-lah-dah You know this melody is always haunting me It delights you, it excites you This melody will never let me be It sneaks up on you unaware Before you even know it's there They're playing, you're swaying It's just a simple melody Designed to haunt your memory It's bound to get you instantly Dah-hah, dah-hah-hah, doo-duh-dah-doo-lah-hah It sneaks up on you unaware Before you even know that it's there You're swaying to its catchy air Dancing with your favourite thrill He will hold you closer still Trumpets ring, then let's sing Rhythm swing De-do-de-do-de-do-de It's just a simple melody (Transcribed from The Andrews Sisters recording by Bill Huntley - November 2005)
