Got My Own Thing Now

This song is by Squirrel Nut Zippers and appears on the album Hot (1996).

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
