Yardbird Suite


One, Two…Onetwothree,
raAat ta-ta, raAat ta-ta,
BA-DUM bum bum bum

Salty peanuts, bitter wine
go down well with
bitter beats and salty rhymes.

Jazz is the only
living thing that can be cured
with a cigarette.

The black man in shades
deadpan in the corner booth
tappin’ just tappin’.

Smooth caramel drips from
brass sax onto a
first-date glance.

We should talk
but words fall flat
in the middle of Funky 3-4

BA-DUM bum bum bum
raAat ta-ta, raAat ta-ta
raAat ta-ta-ta, tsss.
