SWINGIN' DADDY
(Knox - Bowen - Lanier)
BUDDY KNOX (Roulette 4042, 1958)

Oh, I'm a swingin' daddy and I love that jive
Just wind me up and I'll come alive
Throw me a woman with style and grace
Then stand back buddy and give me space
Kicked off my shoes and I messed her hair
And a-watch a real swingin' pair

Well, give me a boogie with a real wild beat
I love a crazy rhythm 'cause a-it's my need
Swing me a woman who can move about
And a-swing it to a rhythm and a-swing it stout
Kicked off my shoes and I messed her hair
And a-watch a real swingin' pair
Hey bop!

I'm not the one and I won't be found
Runnin' a wlaz or a two-step down
But a real cool boogie hits the spot
So crank up the band and let's get hot
Well, I'm a swingin' daddy and I love that jive
Just wind me up and I'll come alive
Throw me a woman with style and grace
Then stand back buddy and give me space
Kicked off my shoes and I messed her hair
And a-watch a real swingin' pair
