lyrics

I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!
I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!

Got no time, got no patience
Gotta swing to win for all occasions
What you doing with your groove thing, your mood ring, ya blues groove swing?
Doowop doowop it's a scat attack!
It's vocal not fecal now you lack some tact
You got your foot thumping too
Jazz tap, it's swing swang swung to be exact

I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!
I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!

Industrial chook, Mum what's for dinner?
Melodies and beats jazz bass critiques
Back in the 50s with the singers and swingers
Now millennials pop pills and get thinner
So sing, sing, sing
Drop the bass, upset the pace
And swing, swing, swing
Take a backseat, great Gatsby

I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!
I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!

I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!
I don't want to live my life if I don't have enough - of what? - of swing!

about

Ensemble Formidable Fremantle, Australia

Sounding like Django doing the charleston with Beyonce at a 1940’s Parisian rave, the 10-piece Ensemble Formidable is a fully live dancefloor doof-device featuring horns, strings, accordion, drums, electrojunk and synth. Barely squeezing onto stage, the chicken-driven machine brings you a rickety wall of sound made from factory-floor sweepings of swing, dubstep, klezmer, manouche, dub and tango. ... more
