Judy Garland — The Jitterbug lyrics

DOROTHY: Did you just hear what I just heard?
LION: That noise don't come from an ordinary bird.
DOROTHY: It may be just a cricket , or a critter in the trees.
TIN MAN: It's giving me the jitters, in the joints around the knees.

SCARECROW: I think I see a jijikin, and he's fuzzy and he's furry.
I haven't got a brain but I think I ought to worry.
TIN MAN: I haven't got a heart, but I got a palpitation.
LION: As Monarch of the forest, I don't like the sitchy-ation

DOROTHY: Are you gonna stand around and let him fill us full of horror?
LION: I'd like to roar him down, but I think I lost my roarer.

TIN MAN: It's a whozis.
SCARECROW: It's a whozis?
LION: It's a whatzis.
SCARECROW: It's a whatzis?
TIN MAN: Whozat?
SCARECROW: Whozat?
LION: Whozat?
ALL THREE: Whozat?

DOROTHY (singing chorus):
Who's that hiding,
In the tree tops?
It's that rascal
The Jitterbug.

Should you catch him
Buzzin' round you,
Keep away from
The Jitterbug.

Oh, the bees in the breeze
And the bats in the trees
Have a terrible, horrible buzz.
But the bees in the breeze
And the bats in the trees
Couldn't do what the Jitterbug does.

So be careful
Of that rascal
Keep away from
The Jitterbug!

The Jitterbug!
Oh, The Jitter.
Oh, The Bug.
Oh, The Jitterbug.
[scat]

In the twitter,
In the throws
Oh, the critter's got me
Dancin on a thousand toes.
There she blows!

Hey, Who's that hiding,
In the tree tops?
It's that rascal
The Jitterbug.

Should you catch him
Buzzin' round you,
Keep away from
The Jitterbug.

Oh, the bats and the bees
And the breeze in the trees
Have a terrible, horrible buzz.
But the bats and the bees
And the breeze in the trees
Couldn't do what the Jitterbug does.

So be so careful
Of that rascal
Keep away from
The Jitterbug!
The Jitterbug!
The Jitterbug!
