THE BIG APPLE (Robert Emmerich / Buddy Bernier) Tommy Dorsey's Clambake Seven (vocal: Edythe Wright) - 1937 Clyde Lucas & His California Dons (Instr.) - 1937 Hod Williams & His Orch. (Instr.) - 1937 DORSEY: Hiya fellahs, what's new? THE BAND: Not much! DORSEY: Not much? Well, hello Edythe, what's new with you? WRIGHT: I've got a new dance. I'd like to show it to you... If you've got rhythm to burn Here's a dance that's easy to learn If you don't, then your name is mud If you don't, you're a social dud 'Cause ev'rybody's learnin' how to do the Big Apple (The Big Apple?) And it isn't very hard to do the Big Apple (The Big Apple?) Ten can do it just as well as two, the Big Apple (The Big Apple?) Ev'rybody's learnin' how to do that brand new Apple dance They say an apple a day will keep the doctor away Hey-hey, it's easy to dance your cares away Ev'rybody's learnin' how to do the Big Apple (The Big Apple?) Come on, learn to do that Apple dance First you gather round, then you cover ground To a bit of this, a bit of that, and then Do a Fred Astaire and a ???? air Truck around and then you start right in again You must do anything that you know The most important thing is just to let yourself go (Instrumental Break) DORSEY: Say, Edythe, what's that apple you're talkin' about? WRIGHT: It's a new dance they're all ravin' about... You truck on down and Suzie Q Then shag a bit, and some posin' too A Lindy hop, you get the lot Put 'em all together and what've you got The Big Apple (The Big Apple?) The Big Apple (The Big Apple) (Well, my my, yes yes, my my!) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2006)
