Music & Lyrics by Antonio Nunzio Catania and Scatman John

Hey Louis.....
Yeah?
Is that you?
Yes Yes
Oh,I'm Scatman John. Would you like to sing a song, man?
Well,sure could
Look out! 1,2,3,4...

(Scatting by Scatman John)

Everybody party down to Louisiana
Everybody jam (yeh)
Everybody come and take a ride with me

(Scatting by Scatman John)

Follow me everybody; let's head down south
To the land with the man with the message
His name was Satch and he played on the match
Everytime he played the horn another blues was born
Everybodys saying that the way he was playing
Had the whole world praying that he never gonna stop
He talks to Scatman all about scat
He's the father of it all as a matter of fact

Louis was a legend in New Orleans
And the Louisiana Dixieland scene
He made a decision that the old time religon to be played out the horn and the blues was born
Satchmo's breathin' deep in my soul
Let me sing it to you
Hallelujah
Hey,hey, whaddya say?
(Scatting by Scatman John)

Everybody party down to Louisiana
Everybody jam
Everybody come and take a ride with me
Hey,hey, whaddya say?
Get out the way, let Louis play

(Scatting by Scatman John)

Take a lesson that I learnt from Louis
He only give it to us 'cause he knew it would renew us
Love is the answer
Scat's where it's at
Louis said even you could teach a cat scat
Shouldn' t be talking about it talking to you
Louis was one swingin' happy guru
If you wanna hear the greatest trumpet in the world,well...

Sing along with me, sing along now
Join me in the opening and join me in the bow
Singin' in the sunset
Singin' at the dawn
You've gotta get it up if you want to get it on
Satchmo's breathin' deep in my soul
Let me sing it to you
Hallelujah
Hey,hey, whaddya say?
Get out the way, let Louis play

Everybody party down to Louisiana
Everybody jam (Everybody) (yeah)
Everybody come and take a ride with me (yeah)
C'mon everybody

Wotcher think of that scat,Satch?
As we scats say, it gassed man
How about a little solo Louis? Yay!

Now blow your horn,Louis

Everybody party down to Louisiana
Everybody jam (Hey,hey, whaddaya say?)
Everybody come and take a ride with me

(Scatting by Scatman John)

Everybody party down to Louisiana
Everybody jam (Hey,hey, whaddaya say?)
Everybody come and take a ride with me
Hey,hey, whaddya say?
Get out the way, let Louis play

(Scatting by Scatman John)

Yay!

(Scatting by Scatman John)
