Lyrics JEHOVAH AND ALL THAT JAZZ Gino Vannelli

Song Lyrics For JEHOVAH AND ALL THAT JAZZ by Gino Vannelli




Hail to the shaman and his cardboard drum and the riffraff
dancing in the sun
I sing for thee
Praise to the ugly and the dispossessed and the genius born of
the viperís nest
You have set me free
Hey, you cranks and you clowns with your heads hanging down
I bring good tidings to you
For all the talent that he has Jehovah donít play jazz like the devil do
See the rose sprung from the heap of dung
the shafthorse hot and heavy hung shamelessly
Check the star dust oozing in the mud on it pilgrimage to flesh and blood
Now ainít that you and me
Hey, you Shakespeares in rags little heretics and hags
To thine own self be true
Well, he may be beautiful and king but Jehovah he donít swing like the devil
Birdman, Birdman, whatís the word, man
Into the night we go
Billie, Billie, knock me silly
Sing to me soft and low
Save me from losing my soul to a heaven as cold as ice
Iíd sooner be a free man in hell than a prisoner in paradise
So I toot my toot for the man with roots
Hey, fifer on the E-flat flute play on, play on
All you sinners and you infidels you you artful madmen bound for hell
come sing along
Come on, you potty-trained saints spoutingí isms and ainíts
Dig the poetry my man
Well all deference to his throne
Gabriel he donít play no saxophone like Coltrane can
Now, save me from losing my soul to a heaven as cold as ice
Iíd sooner be a free man in hell than a prisoner in paradise
Iíd sooner catch fire than kill my desire
Hail to the shaman and his cardboard drum and the riffraff
dancing in the sun
I sing for you
For all the talent he has Jehovah donít play jazz like the devil do
Yeah, the devil do
Must admit he do
Ah, da devil do
Birdman, Birdman, whatís the word, man
Into the night we go
Billie, Billie, knock me silly
Sing to me soft and low
Foll all the talent that he has Jehovah donít play no jazz ....
