THAT DID IT, MARIE (Irene Higginbotham / Fred Meadows) Benny Goodman & His Orch. (vocal: Peggy Lee) - 1941 Tony Pastor & His Orch. - 1942 I was an icky couldn't get in the groove Till this old band began to move Ree ree fah fah bye bye bye That did it Marie. The heat was rising to a hundred and five When all the cats gave out the jive Ree ree fah fah bye bye bye That did it Marie. Dig that sax you jumpin jacks Does that eighty-eighter send ya Jump jump jump it to that trumpet Satch is gonna blow a bunch of riffs Ha! They called me squarey when I walked in at eight By twelve o'clock they called me gate Ree ree fah fah bye bye bye That did it Marie. Note: An "icky" is someone who can't dance. A "gate" (like a swinging gate) is someone who "swings" (dances). The chorus (ree ree fah fah bye bye bye) is just a nonsense line, which was common in songs of the era.
