Oh, 'tain't what you do, it's the way that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the way that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the way that you do it, That's what gets results! 'Tain't what you do, it's the time that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the time that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the time that you do it, That's what gets results! You can try hard, don't mean a thing; Take it easy, breezy, then your jive will swing! Oh, it - 'tain't what you do, it's the place that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the time that you do it, 'Tain't what you do, it's the way that you do it, That's what gets results! You've learned your A B C's You've learned your D F G's, But this is something you don't learn in school; So get your hep boots on, And then you'll carry on, But remember if you try too hard, It don't mean a thing, take it easy! 'Tain't what bring do, it's the way that you bring it, 'Tain't what swing do, it's the way that you swing it, 'Tain't what sing do, it's the way that you sing it, That's what gets results! (scat) That's what gets results, rebop! (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2009)
