Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Shean Lyrics

Oh Mr. Crosby, (Yeah) Oh Mr. Crosby (Ask me son)
All the orchestras are swinging it today
And I wanted to find out what the noise is all about
Do you really think that swing is here to stay

Now I'm glad you asked me
Now Mr. Mercer (Yeah) oh Mr. Mercer (I'm listening)
Swing is really much too ancient to condemn
(You don't say)
In the jungles they would play in that same abandoned way

On the level Mr. Crosby
No, on the down beat Mr. M.

Oh Mr. Crosby, (uh huh) now Mr. Crosby
(So happy to oblige)
I've been reading in the latest magazine (Yes)
That a jiving jitterbug blows his top and cuts a rug
Will you tell me what that language really means

Oh Mr. Mercer (Yeah,Yeah) Oh-ho-ho Mr. Mercer
(Tell me, tell me tell me)
As a student of the slang they use pro tem (Pro what?)
That just means a solid gait cuts a murderisitc plate

That's amazing Mr. Crosby
That's elementary Mr. M.

Oh Mr. Crosby, dear Doctor Crosby
Is it true that swing's another name for jazz
And the first place it was played
Was a New Orleans parade
And the southern Negro gave it all it had

Oh! Mr. Mercer, Mr. Mercer, Mr. Mercer, Mr. Mercer.
I believe that it's foundation came from them
(Are you positive?)
Yes they just slowed the tempo down,
And then they really went to town

Allegretto Mr. Crosby?
Alligators Mr. M

Oh! Mr. Mercer, (Yeah) Mr. Mercer (uh huh)
Well I trust that I have made the matter clear
(It's really too clear)
So if someone plays a thing
You're gonna understand the swing
And appreciate the rhythm that you hear

Oh Mr. Crosby (Oh hear me talking to you)
No Mr. Crosby,
I'm afraid that type of rhythm's not for me
I prefer my music played A La Schubert Serenade

Sorta retardo Mr. Mercer
Sorta Lombardo Mr. C.

Oh Mr. Crosby, (Yeah) Oh Mr. Crosby (Ask me son)
All the orchestras are swinging it today
And I wanted to find out what the noise is all about
