Tommy Dorsey

Thomas Francis "Tommy" Dorsey, Jr. (November 19, 1905 - November 26, 1956) was an American jazz trombonist, trumpeter, composer, and bandleader of the Big Band era. He was known as "The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing", due to his smooth-toned trombone playing. Although he was not known for being a notable soloist, his technicality with the trombone gave him renown amongst other musicians. He was vastly admired by other musicians, however, for his technical skill on his instrument. He was the younger brother of bandleader Jimmy Dorsey. After Dorsey broke with his brother in the mid-1930s, he led an extremely popular and highly successful band from the late 1930s into the 1950s. more »

Grab your coat 
Don't forget your hat
But leave your worries
Leave 'em on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
To the sun sunny side of the street

Pitter-pat
You know that happy tune is my step
Life sorry
If you dig that beat 
On the sun sunny side of the street

Used to walk in the shade
With those blues on parade
What a drag old man
Getting stuck in my shade
Get hip

Don't be afraid
Move it on over
Kill yourself in the clover

Only here for a cent
I'd be rich as Rockefeller
Can't be beat
Gold dust round my feet
On the sunny sunny side of the street
