Cab Calloway The Scat Song Lyrics

Last updated:

When your sweetie tells you, everything'll be okay,
Just skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope skeetle-at-de-op-de-day!

If you feel like shoutin', advertise it just this way:
And skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope skeetle-at-de-op-de-day!

Don't give a hang what words you use at any time,
Sing this silly language, without any reason or rhyme.

When you face the preacher, there's only one thing to say:
Just skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope skeetle-at-de-op-day!

[Scat chorus]


Another version
----------------------
[Starts with impressive scatting, then:]

Spoken: [Bennie Payne?] Say, what you doin', boy? [Cab] Oh, man, I'm just scatting and going right on to town, Satchmo!

When your sweetie tells you, everything'll be okay,
Just: [Instrumental]

If you feel like shoutin', advertise it just this way:
And [Instrumental]

Don't give a hang what words you use at any time,
Sing this silly language, without any reason or rhyme.

When you face the preacher, there's only one thing to say:
Just [Instrumental]

[Followed by incredible scat-singing!]
