READIN' RITIN' RHYTHM Victor Schertzinger / Hartman 1930 as rec by Helen Kane w Leonard Joy & his Band July 1st 1930 New York I just found out I'm wasting time with most of my education; You don't need Latin, you don't need Greek, It's no good for conversation! Throw away your LLD's, Your old MD's, your PhD's, There's a million doctors carving And a million lawyers starving! If you wanna eat, Here's the course complete! Called the RRR degree, Follow me with; Readin', ritin', rhythm, Get acquainted with 'em! Don't cut classes, How time passes now! Newest syncopation! Fluid syncopation! See those scholars With wilted collars, and how! You can cut biology, Psychology, Don't take it! Chemistry's A mystery, And History? We'll make it! You'll do wonders with 'em, With your readin' and your ritin' and your rhythm! You'll go far with a RRR degree! RRR! RRR! Readin' ritin' rhythm! Readin' ritin' rhythm! RRR! RRR! Readin' ritin' rhythm! Readin' ritin' rhythm! Readin', ritin', rhythm, Get acquainted with 'em! Let your dome work, Do your homework right here! And when you're home, say brother, Teach it to your mother! "It's a sell out!", Let us yell out right here! Oh get your cap and gown, Come down, It's time for graduation! See those rows of saxophones, Play the (scat)! Oh, you'll do wonders with 'em, With your readin' and your ritin' and your rhythm! You'll go far with a RRR degree! Readin' ritin' rhythm! Readin' ritin' rhythm! Readin' ritin', readin' ritin', readin' ritin' rhythm! (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009)
