Dixieland Band - Kay Starr
Do you have ever hear the story of The Dixieland Band?
Let me tell you brother and the music was grand!
They had a piano and a clarinet,
The only thing they needed was a second cornet,
And that's what lead to the ruin,
Ruin of The Dixieland Band!
When the folks would holler for the Maple Leaf Rag,
They would get to swinging but the trumpet would drag.
They had to keep him
Cause he played so sweet,
But they needed someone who could give them a beat,
Someone who's born with the rhythm,
Rhythm of The Dixieland Band.
He'd play so sweetly,
Instead of playing
They'd be saying
Sure enough he got 'em so they couldn't play right,
Finally he digged 'em on a Saturday night.
He hit a figgy that was off the chord,
Apoplexy got 'em and they went to the Lord!
And that is the pitiful story,
The story of The Dixieland Band.
Now they're up in heaven and they're happy at last,
'Cause they found a trumpet man who really can blast!
The way he swings 'em is an awful shame,
He can really do it Gabriel is his name!
Now folks, here is a sample,
Listen to The Dixieland Band.
And folks, that was a sample,
Sample of The Dixieland Band.
