Don't mean a thing, you can't swing
Dooa, doa doa, doa doa, doaa
Well, it don't mean a thing, all you gotta do is sing
Dooa, doa doa, doa doa, doaa

Makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Give that rhythm everything you've got
Don't mean a thing, all you gotta do is swing
Dooa, doa doa, doaa

It don't mean a thing, if you ain't got that swing
Don't mean a thing, all you gotta do is sing
Makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
It don't mean a thing, no, it don't mean a thing

Don't mean a thing, if you ain't got that swing
Yeah, doa, oh, doa, oh doa, oh yeah
Don't mean a thing, gotta do is swing
Well, doa, oh doa, oh doa, doa doa

Makes no difference if it's sweet or hot
Give that rhythm everything you've got
Don't mean a thing if you can't swing
Don't mean a thing if you can't sing

Sing your song, all day long
All the time, right on time
Every day, every way
Makes no difference, sweet or hot

Give that song, all you got, sing it, sing it
Doa, doa, oh yeah, doa, alright, oh yeah
Sing the song, all day long
Doaa, oh yeah, doaa, oh yeah

Songwriters
ELLINGTON, DUKE / MILLS, IRVING /
