The Real American Folk Song - The King'S Singers

Written by: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 inoculated 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 youth

 

You taste and it elates you and then invigorates you

The real American folksong the masses coaxed on is a rag

 

A rhythmic tonic for the chronic blues

 

For it's a riot

The real American folksong

 

Is like a fountain of youth

You taste and it elates you and then invigorates you

The real American folksong the masses folksong

 

Not jokesong

 

The real American folksong is a rag
