SWEET AND LOWDOWN from "Tip-Toes" 1925 Musical New York George Gershwin (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1925 as recorded by Lee Wiley with Max Kaminsky & his Orchestra Nov 13th 1939 New York also recorded by - Laddie Cliff & Peggy Beatty '26 Sarah Vaughan '82 George Bassman & his Orchestra There's a cabaret in this city I can recommend to you, Peps you up like electricity When the band is blowing blue! They play nothing classical, no down there; They play nothing else but the lowdown there! If you need a tonic And the need is chronic, If your in a crisis, My advice is; Grab a cab and go down Where the band is playin', milk and honey flow down, Everybody's sayin', "Blow that sweet and lowdown!". Busy as a beaver, You're dancin' till you totter; Sure to get the fever, Nothin' could be hotter, Then know that sweet and lowdown! Philosopher and deacon, You simply have to weaken! Hear those shufflin' feet, You can't keep your seat; Professor, stop your beat! Come on, get in it, You'll love the syncopation! The minute they begin it, Shoutin' to the nation, "Blow that sweet and lowdown!". Philosopher and deacon, You simply have to weaken! Hear those shufflin' feet, You can't keep your seat; Professor! Come on, get in it, You'll love the syncopation! The minute they begin it, Shoutin' to the nation, "Blow that sweet and lowdown!". (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2013)
