It Don't Mean a Thing Lyrics

(music and lyrics by Duke Ellington)

What good is melody?
What good is music?
If it aint possessing something sweet

Now it aint the melody
And it aint the music
Theres something else that makes this tune complete, YES

It dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing
Well it dont mean a thing all you got to do is sing

It makes no difference if its sweet or hot
Just give that rhythm ev-ry-thing you got YES

It dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing

It dont mean a thing
It dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing boy

(Ba ba doo dah doo)

I said it dont mean a thing and all you got to do is sing

(La la la)

Now it makes no difference if its sweet or hot
Just give that rhythm ev-ry-thing you got OHH
It dont mean a thing boy, if it aint got-a-that-a-swinga

(Ba boo ba doo)
