Rhythms

 

In time with the music lovers sway
In time with the piano the trumpets play
In time with the band the singer croons
In time with the singing many moons

Tapping with the toes on the hardwood floor
Swaying with the the rhythms of the Open Door
Whiling the evening away with a swinging beat
Can't do any better in the summer's heat

Whether it be blues or classical jazz
You are going to have some razzamatazz
In time with the music the lovers sway
In time with the piano the trumpets play

The bass comes in soft and low
The drums pick it up but still so slow
In time with the band the singer croons
In time with the singing many moons



(Inspired by listening to Nat King Cole on the piano with Orchestra. Can't get any cooler and mellower than this! )

Rhythms (c)2002 Quentin Clingerman
