Description

Cab Calloway doing a very funny jazz song about being in love. A lot of spoken word here telling the story, and not much singing on this one. Enjoy! Here are the lyrics to follow along with. (Sampson, Gannon) Transcribed from Cab Calloway and His Orchestra with vocals by Cab Calloway and Tyree Glenn, recorded July 24, 1941. From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra 1941-1942; The Chronological Classics 682. Note: Tyree Glenn's part is shown in italics. [Spoken] Hey, Doc, hey, Doc, I've got to see you. [Spoken] Who's that waking me up at 8:30 here in the morning? What's wrong with you, boy? [Spoken] Well, Doc, something is bothering me. [Spoken] Is that so? Well, tell me about it. Hey, Doc, hey, Doc, I wonder what's wrong with me. [Spoken] You look like you're beat to your chops this morning. Hey, Doc, hey, Doc, My temperature's one-oh-three. [Spoken] Well, let me feel your pulse, let me feel your pulse. Hey, Dock, hey, Doc, Whenever she looks at me . . . [Spoken] Oh, there's a chick mixed up in this thing here! Say, do you get a hazy spell? Yeah! A crazy spell? Yeah! And do you run around in circles and yell that you need a pill? Hey, Doc, hey, Doc, My ticker is on the blink. [Spoken] Hey, nurse, hand me my stethoscope over there. [Spoken] What do you think? [Spoken] I think what the trouble is, uh, you in love! [Spoken] Well, Doc, that's a killer. That's a gasser. That knocks me on out.
