Savoy Fare

Move those feet

Down the street

The Ellington Orchestra’s

Playing the blues

********************

Hey cha chatty

What cha doin’?

What cha doin’

Over at the Savoy tonight?

*******************

Black men up in Harlem

Hootin’ and a sailin’

Satin ladies in the waitin’

Trolley trugglin’ on 125th

********************

Hey sweet chatty

What ya sayin’

Over at the Savoy tonight?

*******************

Dreamy reeds spin soft as silk

**********************

Sweet embraces

********************

A way

To sail into the night

**********************

Hey cha chatty what cha doin?

Come with me now

What cha doin’

Over, over at the Savoy tonight
