OPUS ONE Written by Sy Oliver and Sid Garris Clark Sisters Iím racking my brains to think of a name To give to this tune so Perry can croon And maybe old Bing will give it a fling And thatíll start everyone humming this thing The melodyís done, repeat and repeat And if you can swing, itís got a good beat And thatís the main thing to make it complete ĎCause everyoneís a-swinging today So we called it Opus One Itís not for Sammy Kaye, hey, hey, hey Itís Opus One, itís good to swing that sway, baby! If Mr Les Browne can make it renown And Ray Anthonyíll rock it for me Thereís never a doubt, youíll knock yourself out Whenever you can hear Opus One (Doo-doody-ooís) So they call it Opus One Come on, latch on and jump, hey, hey, hey Itís Opus One, come on, latch on and jump, oo-oo-ooh, baby! (Doo-doody-ooís) Opus One ******************* OPUS ONE (Anita O'Day) Written by Sy Oliver and Sid Garris 1944 as recorded by Anita o'Day with Gene Krupa & his Orchestra August 21st 1945 New York They're rackin' their brain To think of a name To give to this tune So Frankie can tune; And maybe old Bing Will give it a fling, And that will start everyone Hummin' the thing. The melody's dumb, Repeat and repeat, But if you can swing It's got a good beat. And that's the main thing, To make with the feet, Cause rockin' rhythm through the day. So they call it Opus One, Come on lads, on and jump, hey, hey, hey! It's Opus one, This ain't no time to slump, maybe! If Benny the king Would do it in swing, And old Mister G Could rock it for me, There's never a doubt You'll knock yourself out, If ever you should hear Opus One.
