"'Long About Midnight"

"'Long About Midnight"


Just take a look at Harlem after sundown,
Any time you choose;
It's hard to find the people feeling run-down;
There's no time for blues.

If you don't know just what to really do
Just take a walk along the avenue;
You'll hear the sounds come a-floatin' through
Along about midnight.

They close the windows and they dim the light
To hide their doings from a stranger's sight;
Everything is going right,
'Long about midnight.

Pianos tinkle, and the couples sway,
Taking the pleasures they find,
They don't care how they live by day,
Why not leave trouble behind?

They're not pretending like the hoy-falloy;
They really mean it; it's the real McCoy.
They turn an ounce of booze into a pound of joy,
'Long about midnight!

"A Blue Serge Suit"

"A Blue Serge Suit"


He isn't hep to jive, he's only half alive
Hep cats call him square
You won't believe this jack
All his clothes date back
To '29 I swear

He wears a blue serge suit with a belt in the back
No drape, no shape, just a belt in the back
Strictly calm and he's off the cob
Wears a pocket watch with a pearly fob
He'd be just as sharp in a sack
As in the blue serge suit with the belt in the back

He isn't old and grey but he's so passe
Swing bands make him frown
He don't get no kicks
From boogie-woogie licks
Oh he's dead but he won't lay down

He wears a blue serge suit with a belt in the back
No flare, so rare, just a belt in the back
He thinks a cat is a household pet
His favorite dance is the minuet
Maybe one day he's gonna crack
And burn that blue serge suit with the belt in the back

He's got a gal named "V", she's twice as square as he
What a gruesome pair
The way they fuss and frown
When gators strut on down
Is more than I can bear

He wears a blue serge suit with a belt in the back
A pip, a zip, a belt in the back
He wears high shoes and a pair of spats
If you dig that junk it'll drive you bats
Maybe some day he's gonna crack
And burn that blue serge suit with the belt in the back

"A Chicken Ain't Nothin' But A Bird"

"A Chicken Ain't Nothin' But A Bird"


Chicken!
Nice fried chicken!
Barbecued chicken!
Won't you send it down the line.

Say!
Everyone's talking 'bout chicken;
Chicken's a popular bird;
Anywhere you go, you're bound to find,
A chicken ain't nothin' but a bird.

Some folks call it a fowl,
That's the story I heard,
But let 'em call it this and let 'em call it that,
A chicken ain't nothin' but a bird.

You can boil it, roast it, broil it,
Cook it in a pan or a pot,
Eat it with potatoes, rice or tomatoes,
But chicken's still what you got, boy!

It was a dish for old Caesar,
Also King Henry the Third,
But Columbus was smart, said "You can't fool me,
A chicken ain't nothin' but a bird."

"A Good Sauce From The Gravy Bowl"

"A Good Sauce From The Gravy Bowl"


I like good sauce in the gravy bowl,
Must be sauce about ninety days old!
Good sauce, good sauce from the gravy bowl!

Drink good sauce from morn til night,
Drink enough and it makes you tight.
Good sauce, good sauce from the gravy bowl!

One drink, two drinks, three drinks, four drinks, five drinks, six drinks,
Drink it, drink it,
You're bound to get high,
And when you do,
You'll feel so blue,
You'll think that you always blue,
And you gonna die!

I like good sauce from the gravy bowl,
Must be sauce about ninety days old!
Good sauce, good sauce from the gravy bowl!

"A New Moon And An Old Serenade"

"A New Moon And An Old Serenade"


A new moon and an old serenade
I just stood there and looked at you
As the violins played
A new thrill; we were both so afraid
But the moon and the melody
Seemed to come to our aid
Heaven gleamed in a rose-colored light
And the music seemed to be saying, "I'm yours tonight
Your heart called, and I gladly obeyed
In the spell of a new moon and an old serenade

"A Strictly Cullud Affair"

"A Strictly Cullud Affair"


When your spirits are low,
There's a place you can go.
You'll never see white folks
At a strictly cullud affair.

See 'em laying 'em down,
Boys, they goin' to town,
You may see a few light folks
But they all got cullud folks' hair.

It's given by the colored ladies' auxiliary,
Come on, brothers, check in all your artillery.

Spend your nickels and dimes,
Have some marv-yu-lous times;
I mean it's too tight, folks,
At a strictly cullud affair.

"Ain't Got No Gal In This Town"

"Ain't Got No Gal In This Town"


Poor me, I ain't got a gal in this town,
All of them turned me down,
'Cause I ain't got a gal in this town.

Eee-eee-eee...
All yellows and browns,
All of them turned me down,
'Cause I ain't got a gal in this town.

Boo-hoo, you hear my mournful wail,
I even looked in jail,
For a familiar frail.

Oooh-doo, you, you, you got me down,
Stop your dragging me 'round,
'Cause I ain't got a gal in this town.

I've got a million gals in Memphis,
I've got a gal way out in Saint Paul,
I took my hat and left them flat
'Cause they couldn't kick the gong.

[Repeats first four verses]
