Jack Hylton and His Orchestra - Ya got something there

English

Ya got something there

Everybody in the land
Would dearly love to lead a band
But how to make a start?
Well, that's the snag
 
First you find a well-known street
Where all the best musicians meet
If you follow what I say it's in the bag
 
Take a little bit of trumpet
And you add a trombone
Pa-di-da, pa-di-da with a rhythm
And ya got something there
 
Take a little bit of team work
Then your three saxophones
Pa-di-da, pa-di-da with a rhythm
And ya got something there
 
That's the secret of Goodman
Oh how he makes you swing
He bends them and sends them
With that certain thing
 
Oh, then you mix a bit of vibro
With a hot clarinet
Everyone will declare when you go on the air
That ya got something there
 
Then you add some comedy
Just like a silly symphony
The 'soons and whistles made of tin
A barnyard noise is all thrown in
 
Like the clucking of the chickens
And the mooing of the cows
Play a tune upon your whistle
And this will make you laugh
 
Then you take the old harmonica
Let him play a few bars
Then the bark of a dog on the road with some sheep
That is followed by cars
 
Then you get the boys to swing it
Let it go with a blare

Vibro refers to a vibraphone
