Deep rhythm captivates me
Hot rhythm stimulates me
Can't help but swing it boy
Swing it brother wing

Don't stop to diddle daddle
Stop this foolish prattle
Come on swing me gate
Swing it brothers swing

Raring to go
And there ain't nobody
Gonna hold me down
Say listen boy
Hurry up and send me
Let me go to town

Stop this diddle daddle
And this foolish prattle
Come on kill me Joe (Jo Jones)
Swing it brother swing

Deep rhythm captivates me
Hot rhythm stimulates me
Can't help but swing it boy
Swing it brother swing

Don't stop to diddle daddle
Stop this foolish prattle
Come on send me Count (Count Basie)
Swing it brother swing
Rarin' to go and there ain't nobody
Gonna hold me down
Say listen boy
Hurry up and send meLet me go to town

Stop this diddle daddle
And this foolish prattle
Come on swing me Count (Count Basie)
Swing, brother, swing!
