Ability To Swing

Ability To Swing

Patti Austin

Everybody's thinking
Thinking pretty hard
Everybody's thinkin'
About singin' from the heart

If you want my opinion
It doesn't mean a thing
If you haven't got that ability to swing
The ability to swing

Everybody workin'
Workin' pretty hard
Everbody workin'
At singin' from the heart

If you want my opinion
It isn't worth a bean
If you haven't got that
Ability to swing

The ability to swing
Dreams, take them away
Got it alone
Honey, Rome wasn't built in a day

But, now it's a ruin
The joke has worn thin
And it isn't cool to abuse the ability to swing
Oh no!

Everbody' talking
Talkin' pretty loud
Everbody lookin'
To stand out from the crowd

Gonna break it to you bucko
It isn't worth a bean
If you ain't in possession
Of the ability to swing

The ability to swing
Friends send them away
Go it alone honey, Rome wasn't built in a day
Now it's a ruin

The joke has worn thin
And it isn't cool to abuse
The ability to swing
SCAT...

But, each beat take me deeper under
Each beat sends me more to sleep
Heart melts ice and heart spells danger
Don't hold your breath boy, 'cause it

Don't come cheap, no
Everybody lookin'
Lookin' pretty hard
Everybody lookin' for a meaning in my art

Gonna give it to you straight boy
It isn't worth a bean
If you haven't got that ability to swing
The ability to swing

Yeah, the ability to swing
The ability to swing
The ability, the ability
The ability to swing

The ability to swing
The ability to swing
Gonna give it to you straight
Boy, it isn't worth a bean

If you haven't got that ability to swing
The ability to swing
The ability to swing
The ability to swing

Oooh
The ability to swing
The ability to swing
