SWINGTIME UP IN HARLEM Tommy Dorsey / J Thomas 1940 Tommy Dorsey & his Orchestra (vocal - Connie Haines) recorded October 16th 1940 Hollywood When the trumpets start to blow In the land of hi-de-ho, Bodies swing to and fro, It's swingtime up in Harlem! When the band begins to swing, Then in rhythm they all sing, And it doesn't take a fling, It's swingtime up in Harlem! Tunes are very simple And there ain't much melody; It's the beat that keeps you jumpin' And how hot's the harmony! Up and down the street they shout, Makes you ask what it's about! Even Old Man Mose swings out, It's swingtime up in Harlem! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2013)
