The Real American Folk Song - Ella Fitzgerald

Written by:Ira Gershwin/George Gershwin

Near Barcelona the peasant crooned

The old traditional Spanish tunes

The Neapolitan street song sighs

You think of Italian skys

 

Each nation has a creative vein

Originating a native strain

 

With folk songs plaintive and others gay

In their own peculiar way

 

American folk songs I feel

 

Have a much stronger appeal

 

The real American folksong is a rag

A mental jag

A rhythmic tonic for the chronic blues

The critics called it a joke song but now

They've changed their tune and they like it somehow

For it's innoculated with a syncopated sort of meter sweeter

Than a classic strain boy you can't remain still or quiet for it's a riot

The real American folksong

Is like a fountain of you'th

You taste and it elates you and then invigorates you

The real American folksong the masses coaxed on is a rag

 

The real American folksong is a rag

A mental jag

 

A rhythmic tonic for the chronic blues

The critics called it a joke song but now

They've changed their tune and they like it somehow

For it's innoculated with a syncopated sort of meter sweeter

Than a classic strain boy you can't remain still or quiet for it's a riot

The real American folksong

Is like a fountain of you'th

You taste and it elates you and then invigorates you

The real American folksong is a rag
