2. Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie

Chorus
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Lift your partner in the air
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Swing them around to the big band sound

Verse 1
Listen to the drums pound out that rhythm
As the trumpets play their tune
The double bass walks and the piano strides
To the saxophones and the slide trombone

Verse 2
Duke Ellington and Count Basie
Were the royalty of Swing
Benny Goodman and his band
Had ‘em dancing in the aisles….. and the place went wild

Chorus
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Lift your partner in the air
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Swing them around to the big band sound

Bridge
Cab Calloway singing Minnie The Moocher
Glenn Miller’s got you In The Mood
Zoot suits and Bobby-soxers
Doin’ the Jitterbug, doin’ the Jive
The Boogie-woogie made them feel fine

Chorus
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Lift your partner in the air
Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Swing them around to the big band sound
