How To Play

|Dbm7       |Ab/C      |E7/B      |Eb7       |
C7     F7-9  Bbm7             F/Bb    Bbm7       Eb9
Don't  you   know, he was the king of saxophones
Yes indeed he was;
Bbm7                       Cm7     Bo       Bbm7
Talkin' 'bout the guy that made it sound so good
            Bbm7/Ab         Gm7-5
Some people knew him by the Bean
But Hawkins was his name
Fm7               Eb7-9                 Ab
    He sure could swing and play pretty too
Gb6            F9                         Bbm7
Sounds good to me -- should sound good to you
I love to hear him playing Body and Soul
     Eb7-9    Ab6         Dbmaj7
Very pleasing to the ear -ear
When I first heard it on the record
I just stopped-- right there
               Bbm7/Ab        Eb7-9
Sounded like a band of angels in the sky
And I have never ever heard a sweeter tone
Eb11                                  Abmaj9
    In fact I pay no 'ttention to the saxophone
 D/E     E7              Amaj7                         Bm7   E7
'Ti-i-il Coleman Hawkins came along and spoke to every one --
C#m7          Dm7
Saying better listen won't you hear me
While I play for you --
Sometimes it's hot
       E7-9      A7-5  A
Then a gain it's blu  -e
My soul just seems to wander
Am9                        D9
Pleasing each and everyone --
               Gmaj7             C13-5
It's what I've long been craving for
    Bm7                 E7-9
The doors have not been always open
Am7      D11                Gmaj7
    But      I am trying to please you
Please don't try to stop me
Hope you like it folks
    Bbm7                     Bbm9
And then he started cooking --
Everytime he played
Some melodic melo dy fast or slow
          Eb7-9            Ab6       Dbmaj9
You could tell that it was Hawkins --
No other one ever has
Quite captured his tone
Bbm7             Bbm7/Ab
Just he alone --
Has the sound that penetrates
It will sure go right through you
       Fm7      Bbm7
Yes it will --
          Abmaj7                        Ab6
And every chorus gives you just another thrill
Then a long came Eddie Jefferson
   Bbm7                                    Eb9
He sang the melody like Hawkins played it
He sang it true
   Eb7-5   Ab6
He sang it blue
     Bbm7              Cm7
Made words for it too
All his fans in New York loved him
There's no one a bove him
            Bbm7/Ab  Gm7-5
Here in the U  S     A
               C7-9                  F9
I've heard 'em say ol' Eddie was the man
Oh how he could sing
Man did he swing
            Db13              Gb9
Sang on the wing, did his own thing
Yes he did
Through out the country --
Music lovers are still wiggin' on Eddie's singing
Abmaj7                Bbm7
All around the world --    he is known
Cm7          Bo
    Rhythm   was his special joy --
   Bbm7                 Bbm9/Ab
He swung it like a horn
He must have been born to be a singer
Eb7-9                           Abmaj7      Ab6
      'Cause his lyrics were so sincere and true
Funny sad or blue
Oh yeah!
          Bm7       E7
And we've got to re mind you
Amaj9                  Bm7
Many years it took him
              C#m7     Eb7-9      D6             Dm6
Singing every day to a chieve his first claim to fame
A/C#                Bm7                E7
      He was twenty years ahead of his time
And he knew it
But he kept right on-a singing
He went all around the world making rhythm
       Bm7                          Am7
'Cause music sure was in him and he knew it was
                    D9          D7-9
Sang with Moody and Richie Cole
He could sing it just like Bird
        Bm7           E7-9
But his forte was the words he wrote to
Music that he sang
So he sang, and he sang
       Bo       Bbm7
And he sang his words so clever
Abmaj7                    Bbm7        Db9-5
       And I know they'll silence him never
 Cm7            Bo
      'Cause he cut this masterpiece
    Bbm7                        Gm7-5
And now we're trying to sing it for you
       Hope the Bean and Eddie both would still approve
      Db6 Fm
There we  go
We didn't mean to reminisce
You can surely bet
That we won't forget
'Cause we hear them yet
     Am7     Abmaj9
Good byyye  -eyyye
