Bobby Vee – The Man Who Invented Jazz lyrics

(Music: Bobby Valentino, Lyrics: Will Birch)

I should have known better
I should have caught on
One moan from his saxophone and you were up and gone
I wanna know how he does it
Know what he has
The man who invented jazz

You're taking the A train
You're headed up town
I'll bet his little sextet, all got your number down
Could it be his charisma?
Could it be his pizzazz?
The man who invented jazz

It can't be his rhythm
It can't be his songs
What can you do with 'em
Send him back where he belongs

You're hummin' a new tune
You're wearing a smile
One bite of his blues in the night and you would run a mile
Does he strike up a fanfare?
With that razzmatazz
The man who invented jazz
I wanna know how he does it
Know what he has
The man who invented jazz
