SING ME A SWING SONG [And Let Me Dance] Hoagy Carmichael (m) Stanley Adams (l) as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Chick Webb & his Orch June 2nd 1936 New York Give me a song that's robust, Feelin' the way I am, Any old band'll go bust If it ain't got that jam! When a body meets a body On the ballroom floor, Then a body asks a body, "What's a swing band for?". Oh baby, I don't want you To croon soft and mellow; Let me warn you in advance, Sing me a swing song and let me dance! Oh baby, I don't want Any moon bright and yellow; You can have your sweet romance, Sing me a swing song and let me dance! Mister Trombone, play some corn, I ain't carin' what note! Mister Trumpet, grab a horn, Brother, give me hot note! Oh baby, I don't want Any tune on a cello; Give the rhythm men a chance, Sing me a swing song and let me dance! Let me warn you in advance, Sing me a swing song and let me dance! You can have your sweet romance, Just sing me a swing song and let me dance! Mister Trombone, play some corn, I ain't carin' what note! Mister Trumpet, grab a horn, Brother, give me hot note! Oh baby, I don't want Any tune on a cello; Give the rhythm men a chance, Sing me a swing song and let me dance! Old Chick Webb is Beatin' it out, Makes me feel like I want to shout! All the boys are ready to prance, So sing me a swing song and let me dance! (Contributed by Peter Akers - August 2009)
