Along the mountain pass 
There is a patch of grass 
Where the swingin' shepherd plays a tune 
His sheep never stray 
Dancin' all day 
Until they see the palin' yellow moon 
And then he leads his flock 
And homeward they all rock 
To the tune of the swingin' shepherd blues 

This I-is something really extra special 
A ditty we like to do just for you 
It's the onliest swinginest grooviest thingy that we've ever done 
And if you like it then before we are through

Then you ought to move along groove and join this song and I don't have to repeat 
It's swing! 
Ah yes!
Now it's complete. 
Whoa!
