Kickin' the gong around

by Harold Arlen. Buy album CD: Over The Rainbow

It was down in Chinatown,
All the cokies laid around,
Some were high and some were mighty low;
There were millions on the floor
When a knock came on the door,
And there stood old Smoky Joe.

He was sweatin', cold and pale,
He was lookin' for his frail,
He was broke and all his junk ran out;
Nobody made a sound,
As he stood and looked around,
And then you hear old Smoky shout:

Saying, "Tell me where is Minnie?
My poor Minnie!
Has she been here,
Kicking the gong around?"

"If you don't know Minnie,
She's tall and skinny,
She gets her pleasure
Kicking the gong around!"

[Scat chorus]

"Just tell her Smoky Joe
Was here and had to go."
And as he departed,
The curtains parted,
And there stood Minnie
Kicking the gong around!

  1. (you got me in between) the devil and the deep blue sea
  2. Ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
  3. As long as i live
  4. Blues in the night (my mama done tol' me)
  5. Bud's won't bud
  6. Down with love
  7. Get happy
  8. Hittin' the bottle
  9. I've got the world on a string
  10. Ill wind (you're blowing me no good)
  11. It's only a paper moon
  12. I gotta right to sing the blues
  13. Kickin' the gong around
  14. Let's fall in love
  15. Let's put our heads together
  16. Now i know
  17. One for my baby (and one more for the road)
  18. Over the rainbow
  19. Public melody no. 1
  20. Raisin' the rent
  21. Stormy weather (keeps rainin' all the time)
  22. That old black magic
  23. Two blind loves
  24. When the sun comes out
