I'm wrackin' my brain to think of a name
To give to this tune so Perry can croon;
And maybe ol' Bing will give it a fling,
And that'll start everyone hummin' the thing.
The melody's dumb - repeat and repeat
But if you can swing, it's got a good beat,
And that's the main thing, to make with the feet,
'Cause ev'ryone's swingin' today.
So I call it Opus One -
It's not for Sammy Kaye, hey, hey, hey.
Opus One...it's got to swing not sway, maybe.
If Mister Les Brown could make it renowned,
And Ray Anthony could swing it for me,
There's never a doubt you'll knock yourself out
Whenever you can hear Opus One.
