Swing! Song Lyrics


[Ruth]
(Spoken in rhythm: Step up; step up! Get Hip; get hip.. C'mon down to the Village Vortex. Home of the new jazz rage:
Swing!)

Swing! Dig the rhythm
Swing! Dig the message
You gotta get your seafood, Mama
Your favorite dish is fish -
It's your favorite dish!

Cats! Make it solid
Cats! Make it groovy
The jive is jumpin' and the music
Goes 'round and around
Get full on yagasaki
Get full on the sound
Of Swing! The solid, groovy, jivey sound of

[Company]
Swing! Dig the rhythm
Swing! Dig the message
You gotta get your seafood, Mama
Your favorite dish is fish

[Ruth]

Don't be square
Rock right out of that rockin' chair
C'mon down and let down your hair
Breath that barrel house air!

Y'gotta get with the Whoa-Hodey-Ho

That old man Moze kicked the bucket
The old oaken bucket
That hung in the well
Well, well, well, Baby

Was it green? No, no, no
Was it red like my true love's hair
