What good is melody, what good is music
If it ain't possessin' something sweet?
It ain't the melody, it ain't the music -
There's something else that makes the tune complete.

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing -
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat.
It don't mean a thing, all you got to do is sing -
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat.

It makes no diff'rence if that rhythm's sweet or hot,
Just give that rhythm ev'rything you got.

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing -
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat,
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-waaaa.
