What good is music
What good is melody
If it aint possessing something sweet
It aint the music
It aint the melody
Theres something else that makes that tune complete

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wah
It don't mean a thing, all you gotta do is sing
Doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wah

Makes no difference if its sweet or hard
You just give that rhythm everything you got

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wah

Makes no difference if its sweet or hard
You just give that rhythm everything you got

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wab doo-wab-di-wah

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
