I'm gonna get high
And it ain't no lie
And swing alone and have a ball
I'm gonna get high

Oh me, oh my
Nobody know why
Oh m'baby, don't you cry
I'm gonna get high

It ain't no need of no one
Tryin' to shame me
But what a state I've got in
Who could blame me?
Oh, yes

I'm gonna get high
I'll do it or die
And swing alone and have a ball
I'm gonna get high

'Yas, yas'

(instrumental)

'Beat it out for me, then'
'Ah-ha'
'i hear you Mr. Sax Player'

(sax)

'Yas, yas'

'Get that trumpet here'

'i hear you Mr. Ivory Man

'c'mon, do it again, please'

(trumpet)

Ah-ha
I'm gonna get high
And it ain't no lie
And swing alone and have a ball
I'm gonna get high

Oh me, oh my
Nobody know why
Oh m'baby, don't you cry
I'm gonna get high

It ain't no need of no one
Tryin' to shame me, yeah-yeah
But what a state I've got in
Who could blame me?
Oh, yeah

Oh, I'm gonna get high
I'll do it or die
And swing alone and have a ball
I'm gonna get high

'Zip it now'
'Yas, yas, yas'
'Ah-ha'
'Ah-yeah'

(piano)

'i hear ya'
'Ah-ha'

Yas, yas
Yas, yas

'Goin' out, boys'

Well, I'm gonna get high
I'll do it or die
Swing alone and have a ball
I'm gonna get high, yas.
