Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When the rhythm gets to rockin' on the swing side
And the cats condescend to lend an ear
When the beatniks start to gather 'round the ringside
There's a certain thing they always want to hear
Seven-twenty, seven-twenty in the books
Verse 2
What's the tune they like the best
When the jive becomes deluxe?
What's the number one request?
Seven-twenty in the books
Verse 3
When the band begins to play
You should see the dirty looks
If the leader doesn't say
Seven-twenty in the books
Verse 4
It's something that you'll approve
Gets you right in the groove
To keep in step
You really gotta be hep
Verse 5
Just be like the kangaroo
Or the fishes in the brooks
Ev'rybody's jumpin' to
Seven-twenty in the books
Verse 6
It's something that you'll approve
Gets you out of the groove
To keep in step
You really gotta be hep
Verse 7
Just be like the kangaroo
Or the fishes in the brooks
Ev'rybody's jumpin' to
Seven-twenty in the books
Verse 8
Seven-twenty
Seven-twenty
Seven-twenty
Let's keep jumpin' to seven-twenty in the books
