    Lyrics

    It was going pop
    And it couldn't stop
    Now it's number one,
    Thanks to Tom the piper's Son.
    Tom, Tom, the piper's Son
    Stole a tune and away he run

    And away run he
    With that melody
    Tom was hot, the tune was sweet
    But he revamped it with a new off-beat
    And the classic thing,
    Got a shot of swing
    Mr. Brahms cried och!
    So did Mozart and Bach

    And to hear them rave
    Paginini tumbled over in his grave
    And now that tune, that no one played
    Has stepped right up and hit the hit parade
    It was growing pop
    And it couldn't, STOP!
    Now it's number one thanks to Tom the piper's son.

    (Chorus with swing ;)
    Tom was hot, the tune was sweet
    But he vamped it with a boogie beat
    And the classic thing,

    Got a shot of swing
    Beethoven turned gray
    So did Debussy and Bose
    It was such a stew
    Tchaikovsky said "I'm gonna sue!"
    And now that tune, that no one played
    Has stepped right up and hit the hit parade
    It was growing pop and it couldn't, stop...
    Now it's number one thanks to Tom the piper's son.

    Every Little Movement
    Every little movement,
    Has a meaning of it's own
    Every thought and feeling,
    By some posture can be shown.
    And every love thought
    That comes a stealing
    All your being Must be revealing
    All it's sweetness In some appealing little gesture
    All of it's own.
