MY BABY LIKES TO BE-BOP Walter Bishop as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Ray Brown & his Orch Dec 20th 1947 New York I was bopped on the head, Now I'm tall as a treetop, And just to end like new, I find the melody's dead, 'Cause my baby likes to be-bop And I like to be-bop too! I was down on my heels, So I hopped to the shoe shop; "Shoe, fix up my boots like new! I gotta be on the job 'Cause my baby likes to be-bop And I like to be-bop too!". (scat) The rhythm is off the beaten track, Jack! (scat) The squares keep tryin' just to beat it back! I saw old Uncle Ned Do a dance and a flip-flop, He jumped like the hep cats do! I flipped my lid when he said, "My baby likes to be-bop And I like to be-bop too!". (scat) How I love to be-bop too! (scat) How I love to be-bop too! I saw old Uncle Ned Do a dance and a flip-flop, He jumped like the hep cats do! I flipped my lid when he said, "My baby likes to be-bop, And boy, (scat) And I like to be-bop too!".
