WHEN SHORTY PLAYS THE SCHOTTISCHE From the film "The Westward Trail" (1948) (Pete Gates) Eddie Dean & The Plainsmen (Film Soundtrack) - 1948 When Shorty plays The Schottische on his old guitar Then all the couples come from near and far He's known as the dandy of the dances where they doe-see-doe 'Cause when he plays The Schottische, he's the whole durn show When Shorty plays The Schottische on his old cornet To me it's as purty as a minuet And even the dancers stop and listen when he plays so sweet 'Cause when he plays The Schottisch, Shorty can't be beat (He can play in F) (Or he can play in C) (And when he plays The Schottische) (He can play in almost any key) When Shorty plays The Schottische on his violin He fastens a 'kerchief underneath his chin And then with his fiddle on his lap he holds the note face down When Scotty plays The Schottische, he's a gosh-durned clown When Shorty plays The Schottische on his slide trombone Why, even the rafters in the dance hall groan And then when he stretches out his arm and puffs his cheeks out fat Then Shorty's gettin' ready for a lonesome flat When Shorty plays The Schottische on his big base viol Then all of the customers begin to smile They gather around and give a listen to the zoom-zoom-zoom 'Cause when he plays the bass, he shakes the whole durn room Now, he can play in F Or he can play in C And when he plays The Schottische He can play in almost any key When Shorty plays The Schottische you can bet your boots He plays it on ev'rything from horns to flutes And then at the finish of the dance he gets a great big hand 'Cause when he plays The Schottische, he's a one man band (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2009)
