With a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. more »

Got a little rhythm, a rhythm, a rhythm
That pit-a-pats through my brain
So darn persistent
The day isn't distant
When it'll drive me insane

Comes in the morning without any warning
And hangs around me all day
I'll have to sneak up to it
Someday, and speak up to it
I hope it listens when I say

[Chorus]
Fascinating rhythm
You've got me on the go
Fascinating rhythm
I'm all a-quiver

When a mess you're making
The neighbors want to know
Why I'm always shaking
Just like a flivver

Each morning I get up with the sun
Start a-hopping
Never stopping
To find at night no work has been done

I know that
Once it didn't matter
But now you're doing wrong
When you start to patter
I'm so unhappy

Won't you take a day off?
Decide to run along
Somewhere far away off
And make it snappy

Oh, how I long to be the man I used to be
Fascinating rhythm
Oh, won't you stop picking on me?
