Dixieland Rock lyric

Sun Nov 27, 2005 12:42 am

Can somebody please post the lyric to the first verse of "Dixieland Rock"?

I don't mean for someone to simply copy it down from a previously printed lyric sheet. I would like someone to play the track, listen very carefully, and then post what he or she hears.

What I hear when I play it is NOT the same as the usually accepted lyric.

Well down in New Orleans at the Golden Goose, I grabbed a green- eyed dolly that was on the loose. Well I dig that news but she said me too! I said pretty baby come on and lets do! Dixieland Rock. :?

Your punctuation is atrocious.

You omit a hypen -- it should read "previously-printed."

Bwah-ha-ha!

Doc,

Your grammar is atrocious! It should read "you've omitted a hyphen". Not that one was necessary in the first place. :wink:

Isn't it "Well I dig that music", and not "news"?

John

Go and listen carefully. At the end of the first verse immediately after "pretty baby come on and let's do" does he actually sing "the Dixieland Rock"?

He's just running the words together - listen closely, you'll hear this:

let's do-a-da Dixieland Rock

And yes, it's "music", not "news".

How about the second stanza


With the blue light shining on her swinging hips
She got the drummer so nervous that he lost his sticks
The cornet player hit a note that's flat
The tromboner hit him while the poor cat sat

That looks right.

Hard to completely make out if he's saying "while" or "where", but sounds more like "while".
