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
Makes no difference if that rhythm's sweet or hot
Give that rhythm everything, everyhing you got
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, doo ah, doo ah, doo ah
Doo ah, doo ah, doo ah, doo ah
Rain, rain go away come here some other day, boy
Doo ah, doo ah, doo ah, doo ah, doo ah
Makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Give that thing everything you got
Makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Give that thing everything little you got
In a hard days night
