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

It makes no difference if it's sweet or hot,
Just give that rhythm everything you got,
Oh

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

What good is melody?
What good is music?
If it ain't possesing something sweet
It ain't the melody
It ain't the music there's something else that makes the tune complete

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

It makes no difference if it's sweet or hot,
Just give that rhythm everything you got,
Oh

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