Mop! Mop! - Live (1955 Crescendo Club) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mop mop! A thousand years ago
Mop mop! A guy named Jungle Joe
Was a drummer man in a Zulu band
That made swing history
Verse 2
Mop mop! One day the king said "Gate!
Why Gate, you old reprobate
I commission you, find a riff that's new
Or your wig belongs to me."
Verse 3
Joe's knees started knockin'
So scared he was stiff
'Til he noticed the tribe was rockin'
As his knees beat out this mellow riff
Verse 4
Mop mop! From the tropic's heat
Mop mop! Came this jungle beat
Though old Joe is gone, his jive lives on
And it still is making history.
Verse 5
Joe's knees started knockin'
So scared he was stiff
'Til he noticed the tribe was rockin'
As his knees beat out this mellow riff
Verse 6
Mop mop! From the tropic's heat
Mop mop! Came this jungle beat
Though old Joe is gone, his jive lives on
And it still is making history.
