RIFFIN' THE SCOTCH Benny Goodman / Dick McDonough / Buck Washington Benny Goodnman & his Orchestra (vocal - Billie Holiday) recorded December 18th 1933 New York I jumped out of the fryin' pan And right into the fire, But I lost me a cheatin' man And got a no 'count liar! Swapped the old one for the new one, Now the new one's breakin' my heart! I jumped out of the fryin' pan And right into the fire, Lord, right into the fire! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2013) ******** Kay Starr with The Lamplighter All Stars recorded June 15th 1946 Los Angeles (scat) I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into a fire! I got rid of a no-count man, I got a no-count liar! Trade the old one for a new one, But the new one is breakin' my heart! I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into the fire! I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into the fire! I traded silk for calico, But country life's too slow! I left the city, What a pity, 'Cause the country is bringin' me down! Say, you can have this country life, I'm goin' back to town! I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into that fire! One day I bought myself a farm, And I found out with a liar! Got a rabbit With a habit, Now the habit is bringin' me down! I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into the fire! I jumped from out of a frying pan, Right into the fire! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2017)
