Organ Grinder's Swing

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

Now eenie meenie minie moe
Catch that monkey by the toe
If he hollers, let him go
Eenie meenie minie moe

Scatty-ah, pa swings it, so does ma
Scatty-ah, ma swings it, so does pa
Scatty-ah, you swing it, so do I
Scatty-ah, I swing it, so do you

When he turns that handle down
Music goes around 'n' around
Everybody starts to sing
To that organ grinder's swing

Tra-la, pa swings it, so does ma
Tra-la, ma swings it, so does pa
Tra-la, you swing it, so do I
Tra-la, I swing it, so do you

Now all the children tag along
Just to listen to his song
Monkey dancing on a string
To the organ grinder's swing

Oh-hum, oh-hum
Oh-hum, oh-hum
I swing it, so do you

Drop a nickel in his hat
Like a rich aristocrat
Every nickel that you fling
Makes that organ grinder swing

Hi-ho, hi-ho
Hi-ho, hi-ho
I swing it so do you

Oh organ, oh organ

Eenie meenie minie moe
Catch that monkey by the toe
This music makes me want to sing
Oh you organ grinder's swing
