Jazz Baby Lyrics
Jazz Baby Song Lyrics
My daddy was a rag-time trombone player,
My mommy was a rag-time cabaret-er.
They met one day at a tango tea,
There was a syncopated wedding,
And then came me!
Folks think the way I walk is a fad,
But it's a birthday present from my mommy and dad-dy.
I'm a jazz baby, little jazz baby, that's me.
There's something in the tone of a saxophone
That makes me do a little wiggle all my own!
'Cause I'm a jazz baby,
Full of jazz-bo harmony.
That "Walk The Dog" and "Ball The Jack" that caused all the talk
Is just a copy of the way I naturally walk!
'Cause I'm a jazz baby, little jazz baby that's me!
Rock to sleep while the cradle went to and fro,
To and fro to the tune of the tickle-toe.
Ever since I started into grow,
Love to hear the music playing, see my dear old mammy swayin'!
Razz-ma-tazz, that's all I ever knew,
All day long I never would get through
Jazz-ma-tazz, that's all I want to do,
So play me a little jazz!!
Jazz baby, full of jazz-bo harmony.
The wailin' of the saxes when those fellas go mad
Cannot compare with what I got from mommy and dad.
So hear this jazz baby,
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah...
Baby, that's me.
