I'm Just a Jitterbug

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Portrait (2003).

I'm just a jitterbug
A happy jitterbug
A little jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive
I'm not a corny hick, (scat)
I know a real hot lick, (scat)
'Cause I'm a jitterbug, mighty glad that I'm alive!

Give me a solid ascender
Not just an elbow bender!
Don't want no old time jazz
No razzamataz, just swing!

'Cause I'm just a jitterbug
A happy jitterbug
A little jitter jitter jitterbug lookin' for a place to jive

The trumpet's goin' crazy
Say, he is a torrid cat!
He sure can swing a-plenty
When he's blowin' through his hat!

Just listen to that gentleman
He's gettin' awful licks!
Sure, when that baby goes to town
He sure is mighty slick!

And now, a-listen folks and you will hear
The drummer of the band
Now I know that he's a drummer
By that drumstick in his hand!

So gather round me, all you cats
Let each man di his part
Come on, you leader, beat it all
The jammin's gonna start!
