Ability To Swing (Austin Patti)

Everybody's thinking thinking pretty hard Everybody's thinkin' about singin' from the heart If you want my opinion it doesn't mean a thing if you haven't got that ability to swing The ability to swing Everybody workin' workin' pretty hard Everbody workin' at singin' from the heart If you want my opinion it isn't worth a bean if you haven't got that ability to swing The ability to swing Dreams, take them away Got it alone Honey, Rome wasn't built in a day But, now it's a ruin The joke has worn thin And it isn't cool to abuse the ability to swing Oh no! Everbody' talking talkin' pretty loud Everbody lookin' to stand out from the crowd Gonna break it to you bucko It isn't worth a bean if you ain't in possession of the ability to swing The ability to swing Friends send them away Go it alone honey, Rome wasn't built in a day Now it's a ruin The joke has worn thin And it isn't cool to abuse the ability to swing SCAT... But, each beat take me deeper under Each beat sends me more to sleep Heart melts ice and heart spells danger Don't hold your breath boy, 'cause it don't come cheap, no Everybody lookin' lookin' pretty hard Everybody lookin' for a meaning in my art Gonna give it to you straight boy It isn't worth a bean if you haven't got that ability to swing The ability to swing Yeah, the ability to swing The ability to swing The ability, the ability The ability to swing The ability to swing The ability to swing Gonna give it to you straight Boy, it isn't worth a bean if you haven't got that ability to swing The ability to swing The ability to swing The ability to swing Oooh The ability to swing The ability to swing
