Lyrics of Birdland

Five thousand light years from Birdland
But I'm still preachin' the rythm
Long gone uptight years from Birdland
And I'm still teachin' it with 'em
Years from the land of the Bird
And I am still feelin' the spirit
Five thousand light years from Birdland
But I know people can hear it
Bird named it
Bird made it
Bird heard it then played it
Well stated Birdland it happened down in Birdland
In the middle of that hub
I remember one jazz club
Where we went to pat feet down on fifty second street
Everybody heard that word that they named it after Bird
Where the rythm swooped and swirled the jazz corner of the world
And the cats they gigged in there were beyond compare
Birdland I'm singing Birdland
Birdland old swingin' Birdland
Hey man the music really turns you on really
Ya turn me around and turn me on
Down them stairs lose them cares where down in Birdland
Total swing
Bop was king there down in Birdland
Bird would cook
Max would look
Where? Down in Birdland
Miles came through
'Trane came too there down in Birdland
Basie blew
Blakie too
Where? Down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall there down in Birdland yeah
There will never be nothin' such as that
No more skoobedoo wah no more
Down in Birdland that's where it was at
I know, ah ah ah ah ah ah I know
Back in them days
Bop was ridin' high
Hello heh heh heh heh heh goodbye
How well those cats remember their first Birdland gig
To play in Birdland is an honor we still dig
Yeah that club was like in another world sure enough, yeah baby
All those cats were cookin' on people just sat and they were steady lookin' on
Then Bird he came and spread the word Birdland
Yes indeed he did
Yes indeed he did
Yes he did
Parker played in Birdland
Yes indeed he really did told the truth way down in Birdland
Yes indeed he did
Yard bird Parker played in Birdland
Five thousand light years from Birdland but I know people can hear it
Bird named it
Bird made it
Bird heard it then played it
Well stated Birdland it happened down in Birdland
Everybody dug that beat everybody stomped their feet
Everybody digs be bop and they'll never stop
Down them stairs lose them cares yeah, down in Birdland
Total swing
Bop was king yeah, down in Birdland
Bird would cook
Max would look yeah, down in Birdland
Miles came through
'Trane came too yeah, down in Birdland
Basie blew
Blakie too yeah, down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall yeah, down in Birdland
Down them stairs lose them cares yeah, down in Birdland
Total swing
Bop was king yeah, down in Birdland
Bird would cook
Max would look yeah, down in Birdland
Miles came through
'Trane came too yeah, down in Birdland
Basie blew
Blakie too yeah, down in Birdland
Cannonball played that hall yeah, down in Birdland
Down them stairs lose them cares yeah, down in Birdland
Total swing
Bop was king yeah, down in Birdland
