SWEET POTATO PIPER >From the film "Road To Singapore" (1940) (Johnny Burke / James V. Monaco) Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour & Bob Hope (Film Soundtrack) - 1940 Bing Crosby with The Foursome - 1940 Glenn Miller & His Orch. (vocals: Marion Hutton and Tex Beneke) - 1940 Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. (vocal: The Pied Pipers) - 1940 Hatchett's Swingette (feat. Stephane Grapelli) - 1941 Music soothes the savage That's a well known phrase But your heart becomes Full of kettle drums When the sweet potato piper plays Go on, throw your hat up Shout a few hoorays Cause you can't hold back You're a jumpin' jack When the sweet potato piper plays Though it's not a magic flute There's a fascinatin' toot It's not exactly beautiful It's sort of like an I don't know I guess you'd call it cute! Sunbeams try new dance steps, Songbirds sound their A's And the world joins in With a great big grin When the sweet potato piper plays Oh, play it Piper! (Instrumental Break) Yes, make me know it! (Though it's not a magic flute) (There's a fascinatin' toot) (It's not exactly beautiful) It's sort of like an I don't know I guess you'd call it cute (Instrumental Break) Yes, I'm with the Piper! (Music soothes the savage) (That's a well known phrase) But your heart becomes Full of kettle drums When the sweet potato piper plays Go on, throw your hat up Shout a few hoorays (Okay!) (Cause you can't hold back) (You're a jumpin' jack) (When the sweet potato piper plays) Though it's not a magic flute (Oh, no, no, no) There's a fascinatin' toot (Toot-doo-doo-doo) It's not exactly beautiful It's sort of like an' I don't know I guess you'd call it cute-li-doot (Sunbeams try new dance steps) (Songbirds sound their A's) (And the world joins in) (With a great big grin) (When the sweet potato piper plays) Oh, sweet potato piper hotter than a pickled pepper picker Pick a piper for me (Transcribed from the Bing Crosby & The Foursome recording by Bill Huntley & Mel Priddle - November 2008) (Contributed by Bill Huntley - November 2008)
