Crazy Rhythm
by Nellie McKay



Crazy rhythm, here's the doorway
I'll go my way, you'll go your way
Crazy rhythm, from now on we're through

Here is where we have a showdown
I'm too high-hat, you're too low-down
Crazy rhythm, here's goodbye to you

They say that
When a high-brow meets a low-brow
Walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain't it a shame and you're to blame

What's the use of prohibition
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm, I've gone crazy too

Now every Greek, each Turk, each Latin
The Russians and the Prussians as well
When you seek the lure of Manhattan
Are sure to come under your spell
You need a folksong to soon throw away
Those Harlem smoke songs they soon learn to play
Can't you fall for Carnegie Hall
Oh, Danny, call it a day and we'll say

Crazy rhythm, here's the doorway
I'll go my way, you'll go your way
Crazy rhythm, from now on we're through
Get on now, go

Here is where we have a showdown
I'm too high-hat, you're too low-down
Crazy rhythm, here's goodbye to you
Shoe shoe!

They say that
When a high-brow meets a low-brow
Walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain't it a shame and you're to blame

What's the use of prohibition
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm, I've gone crazy too
Kick it!
Absolutely ?
That's fine
Down low, huh huh
That's jazz
I'm feeling hot as ?

Crazy rhythm, here's the doorway
I'll go my way, you'll go your way
Crazy rhythm, from now on we're through

Here is where we have a showdown
I'm too high-hat, you're too low-down
Crazy rhythm, here's goodbye to you

They say that
When a high-brow meets a low-brow
Walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain't it a shame and you're to blame

What's the use of prohibition
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm, I've gone crazy too
