It's above imagination
How I love and used to hate you
Gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do

There is something funny about you
Makes me love and yet I doubt ya
But gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do

Now you rub my head, you hold my hand
I used to think you meant it
But I done found out it's make-believe
An I know we're in it, love

I can't quit you, for I have tried it
You got me jealous and I can't hide it
Gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do

'Yas, yas, play it now'

(coronet)

'Ah, yas'
'Ooh, yeah'
'i hear ya'

'Ev'rybody cut that rug, there'

'Ever heard that old word, ladies and gentlemen
'Do it with rhythm ya'all go on'

(piano)

'Swing, now'

(alto sax)

'Oh, yeah'

'Hot they like it'

It's above imagination
How I love and used to hate you
But gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do

There is something funny about you
Makes me love and yet I doubt ya
But gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do

Now you rub my head, you hold my hand
I used to think you meant it
But I done found out that it's make-believe
An I know we're in it, love

I can't quit you, for I have tried it
You got me jealous and I can't hide it
Gee I know, it's a heck of a how-do-you-do-ooo
Yas, yas, yas.
