Sangtekst

I heard you call for an all-star band
It’s something new for the music stand
It’s on the way, but before we start
A-cuttin’ capers around your heart
You’re gonna cheer when you hear this band
There’s never been a better crew
And when you hear the drummer
Lawdy, how the joint’ll hum
A-cuttin’ capers just for you

You’ll never pick about or pick a quarr’l
With Mister Krupa or with Frankie Carle
You’ll never dig a list of bigger names
A-cuttin’ capers with Harry James.
With Benny Goodman and his clarinet
And Tommy Dorsey’s in it, too
Alvino Rey will star
A walkin’ talkin’ steel guitar
A-cuttin’ capers just for you

Listen to that tenor saxophone
Never heard it played with such a tone
And when you get that lic’rish stick
Out in the woodshed, son
Why it’s Papa Benny Goodman
And he’s showin’ ya quick
How the proper lic’rish stickin’s done
(Too-root-dah-roo-ta-doo-doo)
Listen to that fiddle player slap, slap, slap
Boy, he plays it, he really lays it, in your lap, lap, lap
Say, I’ll bet before they’re through
You’ll be cu-u-u-u-u-u-tin’ capers, too
(Doo-doo-doo-doo-roo-doo)

(Instrumental Break)

(Do-rah-do)

(Instrumental Break)

Cuttin’ capers ’cause I’m out with you
Nothin’ else that I’m about to do
My heart begins to flutter like a dove
I even stutter (Guess it’s love)
I’m cuttin’ capers so you’ll notice me
When we’re together, can’t you see
I’m only blowin’ off
A-talkin’ big, a-showin’ off
A-cuttin capers ’cause it’s true
Dee-dah-dee-dah-ooh-ooh-ooh
Baby, I’m in love (Baby I’m in love)
Baby, I’m in love with (Baby, I’m in love with)
Baby, I’m in love with you!
