Yeah man, make a plan
Ev'rybody, let's get started
Get that Harlem swing

Ev'ry man, in the band
Let's get busy, the gang's all dizzy
With that Harlem swing

Ev'rybody, from miles around
Are here in town, to break 'em down
They all wild about the mellow sounds
So let's get pumpin' loud

Yeah man, you understand
Ev'rybody, grab somebody
And do that Harlem swing

(instrumental)

'Yas, yas, yas
Uh-huh! Ah-yea-yeah

At's it!

Ah, run and come and bump it!

(piano)

'i hear you, Mr. Piano Man

'Uh-huh, yas-yas

Oh yes, man
Here's the plan
Ev'rybody, let's get started
Get that Harlem Swing

Ev'ry man, in the band
Let's get busy, the gang's all dizzy
With that Harlem swing

Ev'rybody, from miles around
Are here in town, to break 'em down
They all wild about the mellow sound
So let's get pumpin' loud

Yeah man, you understand
Ev'rybody, grab somebody
And do that Harlem swing

(instrumental)

'Yeah, yeah'

'Uh-huh

'i hear ya'

'c'mon do it again, take there'

'Hey! '

(alto sax)

'Yas, yas'

Ooh, yeah, man
You understand
Ev'rybody, grab somebody
And do that Harlem Swing.
