The Lady Says (she don't like jazz)

 





Noel Paul Stookey
©1976 Neworld Music Publishing
 

The lady says she don't like jazz
You know that seems most peculiar to me
'Cause of all the gifts the lady has
The one I love just keeps surprising me…

Like when0Ii'm down and in it
It only takes a minute till she finds me
Turns my blue note into a new note
Improvisation, modulation

The lady says she don't like jazz
But I think she might if she knew
Just what a little sponaneity can due

   instrumental

When i'm up against it
She says "now don't get tense, it's
Just your perspective.  take a walk behind it, 
I'm sure that you will find it's a
'Trees-for-the-forest' eight bar chorus

The lady don't like jazz (that's what she says)
And I would tend to agree
Except when the lady
Except when the lady
Except when the lady's with me
