"St. Louis Blues"

"St. Louis Blues"


I hate to see that evening sun go down,
I hate to see that evening sun go down,
'Cause my lovin' baby done left this town.

If I feel tomorrow, like I feel today,
If I feel tomorrow, like I feel today,
I'm gonna pack my trunk and make my getaway.

Oh, that St. Louis woman, with her diamond rings,
She pulls my man around by her apron strings.
And if it wasn't for powder and her store-bought hair,
Oh, that man of mine wouldn't go nowhere.

I got those St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be,
Oh, my man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me.

I love my man like a schoolboy loves his pie,
Like a Kentucky colonel loves his rocker and rye
I'll love my man until the day I die, Lord, Lord.

I got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be, Lord, Lord!
That man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me.

I got those St. Louis blues, I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the blues,
My man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me, Lord, Lord!

[Version 2]

Got St. Louis blues...blue as I can be;

There's two people in this world I just can't stand;
There's two people in this world I just can't stand;
That's a two-faced woman and a lyin' man;

I'm gonna leave this town walkin', talkin' to myself;
I'm gonna leave this town walkin', talkin' to myself;
Because the sweet woman I love, she belongs to somebody else.

(Oh, I say, look here, sweet mama, someday your papa's...
When that big old hound comes around...
And when that big old piece of hound comes..
He's sure gonna leave this town.)

I'm goin' back to Chicago to have my hambone boiled;
I'm goin' way back to Chicago to have my hambone boiled;
Because these women in New York City let my good hambone spoil.

I got the St.Louis blues, sweet mama, got St. Louis blues, just blue,
Blue as I can be, St. Louis blues; baby,
Aw, your daddy got St. Louis blues, sweet mama,
All those blues, I'm blue as I can be.

[Version 3]

I hate to see that evenin' sun go down,
I hate to see that evenin' sun go down,
'Cause my baby has left this town.

If I'm feelin' tomorrow, just like I feel today,
If I'm feelin' tomorrow, like I feel today,
I'll pack my trunk and make my get-away.

St. Louis woman, with all her diamond rings,
Stole that man of mine, by her apron strings;
If it wasn't for powder, and her store-bought hair,
That man I love wouldn't've gone nowhere!
Nowhere!

I've got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be;
Lord, that man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me!

Gee, I love that man like a school boy loves his pie,
Just like an old Kentucky colonel loves his rock and rye,
I guess I'll love that man until the day I die.

"Stack O'Lee Blues"

"Stack O'Lee Blues"


Stack O'Lee blues,
Know what it means,
Come on, honey, let's be stepping,
'Cause my feet won't keep still,
I've just gotta dance until I've had my fill.

Stack O'Lee blues,
Play it over for me;
I go crazy when I hear it

Anywhere I may be;
I long to hear them playing that Stack O'Lee.

"Stardust"

"Stardust"


Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song;
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you.
That was long ago,
When each kiss was an inspiration;
Now you were in my arms,
And my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song,
Beside a garden wall,
When the stars are bright
You are in my arms;
The little nightengale sings his fairytale
Of paradise where roses grew,
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody,
The memory of love's refrain.
When I'm all alone
And thought I was with you,
I get so lonesome, honey, just for you,
I love to hear you sing that song.

"Stormy Weather"

"Stormy Weather"


Don't know why
There's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time, the time
So weary all of the time

When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray
The lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all of the time

I walk around,
Heavy-hearted and sad
Night comes around
And I'm still feeling bad
Rain pourin' down
Blinding every hope I had
This pitter 'n patter 'n beatin' 'n spatterin' drivin' me mad

Love, love, love, love
This misery will be the end of me

When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray
The lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Keeps raining all the time

"Strange As It Seems"

"Strange As It Seems"


Though I know I'm wasting my time to love you.
Strange as it seems,
Deep down in my heart, I do
Strange as it seems, I keep on thinking of you
Clinging to dreams, dreams that I know will not come true

One night of bliss, one stolen kiss
Is thrilling me yet
Why should it be our loving it be
Now must forget we ever met

Though you can be nothing to me I want you
Strange as it seems,
Deep in my heart, I do.

[Scatting]

Strange as it seems to me

[Scatting]

Strange as it seems,
Deep in my heart, I love you, baby.

"Sweet Georgia Brown"

"Sweet Georgia Brown"


No gal made has got a shade
On sweet georgia brown,
Two left feet, oh, so neat,
Has sweet georgia brown!
They all sigh, and want to die,
For sweet georgia brown!
I'll tell you just why,
You know I don't lie, not much:
It's been said she knocks 'em dead,
When she lands in town!
Since she came, why it's a shame,
How she cools them down!
Fellas she can't get
Must be fellas she ain't met!
Georgia claimed her, georgia named her,
Sweet georgia brown!
No gal made has got a shade
On sweet georgia brown,
Two left feet, oh, so neat,
Has sweet georgia brown!
They all sigh, and want to die,
For sweet georgia brown!
I'll tell you just why,
You know I don't lie; not much:
All those gifts those courters give,
To sweet georgia brown,
They buy clothes at fashion shows,
With one dollar down,
Oh, boy! tip your hat!
Oh, joy! she's the cat!
Who's that, mister? 'tain't a sister!
Sweet georgia brown!

"Sweet Jenny Lee"

"Sweet Jenny Lee"


Sweet Jenny Lee from sunny Tennessee,
You'll love her when you see
Sweet Jenny Lee!

Each little bird is singing merrily
Just getting set to see
Sweet Jenny Lee!

She's got that certain little something in her style,
She's got a great big bit of heaven right in her smile.

She promised me that she'd say yessiree,
That's good enough for me,
Sweet Jenny Lee.

"Take The 'A' Train"


You must take the A train
To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem

If you miss the A train
You'll find you missed the quickest way to Harlem

Hurry, get on, now it's coming
Listen to those rails a-humming

All aboard, get on the A train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

"Tee-Um, Tee-Um, Tee-I, Tahiti"


Tee-um, tee-um, tee-i, Tahiti
It means I'm comin', comin' back to you

Tee-um, tee-um, tee-i, Tahiti
It means I'm comin', comin' back to you

Across the western ocean
You'd find a ship in motion
With love and devotion, too

Oh, tee-um, tee-i, Tahiti
It means I'm comin', comin' back to you

"That Man Is Here Again"

"That Man Is Here Again"


Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!
Mama, that man's here again!

Brothers and sisters, have you heard the news today?
Now, I've been told that Mr. Van Chuba is in town to stay!
He's the new sensation,
He has lots of syncopation,
Come on, gather 'round 'cause I've got more to say,
Oh, yeah!

Mama, Mama, that man is here again!
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah!

Mr. Van Chuba, came back from Cuba,
Playing his tuba,
That man is here again!

He plays the hot number,
Breaks up your slumber,
You will dance the rhumba,
Oh, yeah!
That man is here again!

When that man begins to swing,
Everybody goes to town,
Oh, he has that certain thing
Makes you Suzy-Q, then you truck on down.

He keeps you swayin',
While he is playin',
Everyone is sayin', "Oh, yeah,
That man is here again!"

[Scat chorus]

That man is here,
That man is here, is here again!
