All That Jazz ©

Marc R. Sherland
Glasgow, Scotland
2004

Boo-da-boom, choot-da-dee, trumpet and blues,
Burst from set routine, fit to bang, lungs spree,
Out in best glad rags, tapping shine shoes.

Follow the scent, a sleuth trailing clues,
Rapping the rhythm, of jazz spouting key,
Boo-da-boom, choot-da-dee, trumpet and blues.

Down in the neon of spectral confuse,
Twinkle the diamonds, of sweet suitors' plea,
Out in best glad rags, tapping shine shoes.

Splash in the puddles, the muddles who choose,
Fur coats and sequins and purses payee,
Boo-da-boom, choot-da-dee, trumpet and blues.

Jostle the door man, flirt, whilst he woos,
Twiddle his tie pin and fondle his glee,
Out in best glad rags, tapping shine shoes.

Muffle the cornet, smoke flumes rise, sleaze shoos,
Cocktails and dancing and fine pedigree,
Boo-da-boom, choot-da-dee, trumpet and blues,
Out in best glad rags, tapping shine shoes.
