The Andrews Sisters

The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 – May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 – October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano Patricia Marie "Patty" Andrews (born February 16, 1918). Throughout their long career, the sisters sold well over 75 million records (the last official count released by MCA Records in the mid-1970s). Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues or jump blues. more »

We're off
We're off for a day at the races
And who knows, who wins, who shows, who plays
I know
You know?
I know
Well, go
Well, hand me the form, I'm a little bit 

I got the horse right here
The name is Paul Revere
And here's the guy that says if the weather's clear
Can do, can do
And this guy says the horse can do
If he says the horse can do
Can do, can do

I'm picking Valentine
'Cause on the morning line
The guy has got him figured at five to nine
But look at Epitaph, he wins it by a half
According to this here in the Telegraph
Epitaph, Valentine and Revere
I got the horse right here, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute

For Paul Revere I'll bite
I hear his foot's alright
Of course it all depends
If it rained last night

I know it's Valentine
The morning words looks fine
Besides, the jockey's brother's a friend of mind
And just a minute, boys, I got the press-box noise 
Because my great grandfather was Equipoise
Epitaph, Valentine, Paul Revere
I got the horse right here

Just a second, just a second, just a second

I tell you Paul Revere
Now, this is no bum steer
It's from a handycapper that's real sincere

I go from Valentine
'Cause on the morning line
The guy has got him figured at five-to-nine
So make it Epitaph
He wins it by a half
According to this here in my Telegraph

Epitaph, Valentine, Paul Revere
I got the horse right here
(And the winner, Twinkletoes)
Twinkletoes?
We had the horse right here
