Nat King Cole

"Ebony Rhapsody"

[Verse 1]
There's rhythm down in Martinique isle
That has any minuet beat a mile for
Low-down quality, and they call it
The ebony rhapsody

[Verse 2]
Instead of playing music like you do
They supply a little classical voodoo
They keep swingin' that thing
And singin' that ebony rhapsody

[Bridge]
It's got those licks, it's got those tricks
That Mr Liszt would never recognise
It's got that beat, that tropic heat
They shake until they make the old thermometer rise

[Verse 3]
Oh brother yes, they all have bandanas
They go to market singing happy hosannas
Swaying to that ebony rhapsody

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 4]
There's a rhythm down in Martinique isle
That has any minuet beat a mile, for
Low-down quality, and they call it
The ebony rhapsody

[Verse 5]
Instead of playing music like you do
They supply a little classical voodoo
They keep swingin' that thing
While singing that ebony rhapsody

[Bridge]
It's got those licks, it's got those tricks
That Mr Liszt would never recognise
It's got that beat, that tropic heat
They shake until they make the old thermometer rise

[Verse 6]
Brother yes, they all have bandanas
They go to market singing happy hosannas
Swaying to that ebony rhapsody
Twisting to the ebony rhapsody
