WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED SWING? (Hecht / Bass) Don Hecht / Bass as recorded by Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra (vocal - Joe Thomas) February 7th 1929 Everywhere I go the shout is "Swingin'!", Seems to me that swing is king, And if that is so, I would like to know, What is this thing called swing? When I hear a tune, try to sing it In a croonin' voice like Bing, But the band gets hot And I'm on the spot, What is this thing called swing? With great persistence I've sought assistance >From homes and filo fans; They told me in advance they too proclaim it, But simply can't explain it! If someone knows I wish they'd spring it, So that I can solve this thing; For goodness sake, Give a guy a break! What is this thing called swing? (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2013)
