SHOUT, SISTER, SHOUT (Bill Doggett / Lucky Milinder) Lucky Millinder & his Orchestra (vocal : Sister Rosetta Tharpe) (Shout, sister shout, Shout, sister shout Shout, sister shout, Tell the whole world what it's all about) Now listen everybody to the precious words I'm gonna do some chirping And I ain't no bird There's a reason for living A reason for dying A darned good reason why a woman starts crying A reason for a mole, a reason for a dimple But there ain't no reason why a man's so simple (Shout, sister shout) Yeah! (Shout, sister shout) I'm tellin' you (Shout, sister shout) Yeah! (Tell the whole world what it's all about) There's a way to be brilliant A way to be a fool A way to get to heaven Observe the golden rule A way to get a sweetheart, A way to get a wife But the day you quit me brother That's the day you lose your life (Shout, sister shout) Yeah! (Shout, sister shout) oh boy! (Shout, sister shout) Yeah! (Tell the whole world what it's all about) There's a reason for a mountain, A reason for a hill A reason why a doctor Gives a patient a pill A reason to stand A reason to sing But there ain't no reason Why a man can't swing (Orchestral Break) (Male Voice) I can understand the birds And I can understand the bees Sister, I can even understand Why a rat eats cheese (Tharpe) I can understand my dog (Male) And I can understand your cat (Tharpe) Well fill me full o' rhythm Can you understand that (Male) I gotcha covered sister (Shout, sister shout) hallelujah! (Shout, sister shout) hallelujah! (Shout, sister shout) hallelujah! (Tell the whole world what it's all about) (Tharpe) I'm gonna shoooo-ut I'm gonna shoooo-ut I'm gonna shout it out And tell the world what it's all about. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - February 2005)
