When I was a lad, I was a little bit shy
Something came along and caught my eye
When I heard the jazz band strike up
I swear, I had my mind made up

Now I'm getting older
Everything is in full swing
Now I'm getting bolder
Boy, I've got to do that thing

I used to walk along with the rest
Got something all my own
Oh baby, you got a little something
Darling, you got a little something new
(Got a little something new)

Broke away, somehow
That's why I'm swinging it
I've got my own thing now

Now, children put away your toys
All your little children's games
Let the jazz band make some noise
Step up ladies and watch out boys

Mirror on the wall
Who's the hot band in the hall?
Let everybody sing
Boy, you've got to do that thing

Used to walk along with the rest
Got something all my own
Oh baby, you got a little something
Darling, you got a little something new
(Got a little something new)

Broke away, so
Everybody say so
That's why I'm swinging it
Shoo bop shoo bop shoo bop shoo bop shoo doo op
