The Old Music Master 歌詞

The Old Music Master - Hoagy Carmichael

One night long ago by the light of the moon

An old music master sat composing a tune

His spirit was soaring and his heart full of joy

When right out of nowhere stepped a little colored boy

 

You gotta jump it music master

You gotta play that rhythm faster

You're never gonna get it played

On the happy cat hit parade

You better tell your friend Beethoven

And mister Reginald de koven

They gotta do the same as you

Or they're gonna be corny too

 

Long about nineteen seventeen

Jazz'll come upon the scene

Then about nineteen thirty-five

You'll begin to hear swing

Boogie woogie and jive

You gotta show that big broadcaster

That you're a solid music master

And you'll achieve posterity

That's a bit of advice from me

The old music master simply sat there amazed

As wide-eyed and open-mouthed he gazed and he gazed

How can you be certain little boy tell me how

Because I was born me

A hundred years from now

 

He hit a chord that rocked the spinet

And disappeared into the infinite

And up until the present day

You can take it from me

He's as right as can be

Everything has happened that-a-way

 

Long about nineteen seventeen

 

Jazz'll come upon the scene

Then about nineteen thirty-five

You'll begin to hear swing

Boogie boogie and jive

 

He hit a chord that rocked the spinet

And disappeared into the infinite

And up until the present day

You can take it from me

He's as right as can be

Everything has happened that-a-way
