O Jazzman - Poem by Charlotte Riddle

The melancholy flow of Jazz
The beat that’s gentle and slow
O Jazzman, play it again,
I don’t wanna go

The swingin’ flow of Jazz
It rolls off the tongue so fine
O Jazzman play it again
You swing real divine

The rockin’ flow of Jazz
You stomp your feet
To the beat
To the rockin’ beat
Of Jazz
O Jazzman, play it again
I can’t leave my seat

O the flow of Jazz
The beat
The style
The razzmatazz
O Jazzman, play it again
I wanna stay awhile
