​I Was Born To Blow This Horn

This song is by Michael-Leon Wooley.

Ladies and gentlemen
Have I got a story for you
Now, listen, I wasn't always this big

When I was a little gator
I dreamed I'd get the chance
To blow my horn in New Orleans
And make the people dance

I practiced playin' night and day
To make this trumpet sing
All the cats in the Bayou know
I can play this thing

Well, I was born, I was born to blow this horn
When I was born that early morn
My mama said blow your horn

I'm a star, they all come from near and far
Late at night to early morn
I was born to blow this horn

When I'm on the bandstand
I play with heart and soul
I wanna fill the world with rhythm
And let the good times roll

I play for people walkin' by
I play for kings and queens
Come and hear me wail all night
When you're down in New Orleans

Well, I was born, I was born to blow this horn
When I was born that early morn
Mama said blow your horn, son

I'm a star, they all come from near and far
Late at night to early morn
I was born to blow this horn

Yeah, here I go
I sound good, don't I?

I was born, I was born to blow this horn
When I was born that early morn
Mama said blow your horn

I'm a star, they all come from near and far
Late at night to early morn
I was born to blow this horn
(Incomprehensible)
