YARDBIRD SUITE (ALT)
Alternate lyrics from Eddie Jefferson's Album "Come Along With me"
Record Label: Original Jazz Classics
Originally released: 12 Aug 1969
What is the musical topic of the day
Bebop so the critics say
Well that was OK
Who were the originators?
Do you know?
Yardbird and Diz they tell me
I think it’s quite so
Now I’m just quoting fellas like
Toscanini and Stokowsk
As long as I’m hip to it
I think I’ll hip it to the house
Explain it to the folks
Bebop my friends
Was just a whole lot of fun
You could take any old riff
And make a real long run
