The Lyrics

She wears chic dresses,
and glamorous hats,
highlights her tresses,
and never wears flats,
with sassy jewelry, that melts all the cats, that's how my baby really
swings...

She's into Kenton,
and Woody's third herd,
grooves to Gillespie,
and taps to the Bird,
tunes out those rappers,
and all of those words,
that's why my baby really swings..

bridge

Forget the Lakers,
Blazers, Pacers and Kings,
Bebop's her thing,
no fool...stays cool
Hangs out at Birdland ,
and dines on those wings.
that's how my baby really swings..

Once flew to Paris,
to stare at the Louvre,
danced in the follies,
and made every move,
listened to Dexter,
till she found her groove,
that's why my baby really swings

Stunning and cunning,
but...never mean,
mental but gentle,
and killer lean,
hates synthesizers,
and all drum machines,
that's why my baby really swings

bridge
She loves the cool sound,
of jazz in the air,
can't stand no square,
she's broke....does coke..
Flips for Bobby Darin
whenever he sings,
(that's when my baby takes a fling) with out chorus and tag (and) that's
when my baby really swings
