About You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)

"(If You Can't Sing It) You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)" is a song written by Sam Coslow that is strongly associated with Ella Fitzgerald. It was first recorded by Fitzgerald on 29 October 1936 and became one of her signature songs. It was a firm fixture of her live performances, providing a springboard for her scat singing. On the 2007 tribute album We All Love Ella: Celebrating the First Lady of Song recorded to mark Fitzgerald's 90th birthday, it was performed by Chaka Kahn and Natalie Cole. Cole and Patti Austin performed the song at the tribute concert to Fitzgerald on June 6, 2007.

My fur-coat's old
Oh, lord ain't it cold
But I'm not gonna holler
'cause I've still got a dollar
And when I get low
Oh-oh-oh-oh I get high

My man walked out
Now you know that ain't right
Well he better watch out
If I meet him tonight
I said when I get low
Oh-oh-oh-oh I get high

All this hard luck in this town has found me
Nobody knows how troubles all drownin' 'round me
Oh-oh-oh-oh

I'm all alone
With no one to pet me
But old rocking chair
Ain't never gonna get me
`cause when I get low
Oh-oh-oh-oh I get high



When I get low
Oh-oh-oh-oh I get high
