MUSIC MAKES ME From the film "Flying Down To Rio" (1933) (Gus Kahn / Edward Eliscu / Vincent Youmans) Ginger Rogers - 1933 Fred Astaire - 1933 Don Neely's Royal Jazz Orch. - 1994 Daryl Sherman - 1996 Paul Bacon - 2002 In me you see a sinner And dancing is my crime It seems a sin I've gotta give in To syncopated time It makes me lose my dignity, It makes me lose my poise And some folks call it music, But my folks call it noise I like music, old or new, But music makes me do the things I never should do I like music, sweet or blue, But music makes me do the things I never should do My self control was something to brag about Now it's a gag about town The things I do are never forgiven For just when I'm livin' 'em down I hear music, then I'm through For music makes me do the things I never should do I like music old or new But music makes me......... I like music sweet or blue But music makes me......... My self control was something But now it's a gag about town The things I do are never forgiven But just when I'm livin' 'em down I hear music then I'm through For music makes me do the things I never should do (Transcribed from Ginger Rogers' vocal in "Flying Down To Rio" by Mel Priddle - October 2002)
