Satchmo Say

Some folks say
the big band sound is the only sound
but that sentiment
gets some resentiment
from the cats and chicks who like a trio
and Satchmo say
there’s only two kinds of music:
good and bad

Some folks say
hollywood style is the only style
but that opinion
ain’t shared by the minions
(of the cats and chicks who like the Savoy)
well Satchmo say
there’s only two kinds of dancing:
good and bad

Now there ain’t no doubt
Kyle B is in and Kenny G is out
Hey I gotta say
there’s black and white in every shade of gray

Some folks say
the way they play is the only way
but that’s a fallacy
modern malice jazznocracy
that the cats and chicks won’t dig tomorrow
well Satchmo say
there’s only two kinds of playing

Satchmo, Satchmo say
there’s only two kinds of dancing
there’s only two kinds of playing
there’s only two kinds of music:
good and bad
