Count Basie

William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother first taught him piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and improvised to accompany silent films at a local theatre in his town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935. more »

Life is a song, let's sing it together
Let's take our hearts, end it then in rhyme
Let's learn the words, let's learn the music together
Hoping the song lasts for a long, long time

Life is a song that goes on forever
Love's old refrain can never go wrong
Let's strike the note Mendelssohn wrote concerning spring weather
Let's sing it together and make life a song

Let's strike the note Mendelssohn wrote concerning spring weather
Let's sing it together and make life a song
And make life a great big song
