It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)

This song is by Duke Ellington and appears on the album Reminiscing In Tempo (1991).

This song has been covered by Tony Bennett under the title "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing".
What good is melody?
What good is music?
If it ain't possessing something sweet

It ain't the melody
It ain't the music
There's something else that makes this song complete

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Well it don't mean a thing all you got to do is sing

It makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Just give that rhythm ev-ry-thing you got YES

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing

It don't mean a thing
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing boy

I said it don't mean a thing and all you got to do is sing

Now it makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Just give that rhythm ev-ry-thing you got OHH
It don't mean a thing boy, if it ain't got-a-that-a-swinga
