Bounce Me Brother With A Solid Four – From the movie “Buck Privates (1941)” – Música

Buck Privates is a 1941 musical military comedy film that turned Bud Abbott and Lou Costello into bona fide movie stars. It was the first service comedy based on the peacetime draft of 1940. The comedy team made two more service comedies before the United States entered the war (In the Navy and Keep ‘Em Flying). A sequel to this movie, Buck Privates Come Home, was released in 1947. Buck Privates is one of three Abbott and Costello films featuring The Andrews Sisters, who were also under contract to Universal Pictures at the time.

The Andrews Sisters – Bounce Me Brother With A Solid Four – From the  movie “Buck Privates (1941)”

Say, what kind of beat is that?
Man, it really spins my hat
Doesn’t sound like boogie woogie
‘Cause really got the beat
Seems to us that it’s in four
Let us hear it just once more
Come on and Latch on to that rhythm
Because a Solid four’s my beat

Some folks like to hear eight beat rhythm
I don’t go for that stuff no more
Anytime you really want to send me
Bounce me brother with a solid four

Come on in, the whole place is jumpin’
Every body’s out on the floor
If you want to keep the rhythm pumpin’
Bounce me brother with a solid four

The boogie woogie was never like this
We’ve got a new beat that no one can miss
if Boogie woogie sent like I think it did
Four to the bar will flip your lid

Move the tables and roll the rug up
Shut the windows and lock the door
While I try to dig the Li’l Brown Jug up
Bounce me brother with a solid four

Clang, clang, clang, clang, clang, clang
The joint is jumpin’ as it never did before
Clang, clang, clang, they’re saying
Bounce me brother with a solid four

The boogie woogie was never like this
We’ve got a new beat that no one can miss
If boogie woogie sent you like I think it did
Four to the bar will flip your lid

Move the tables and roll the rug up
Shut the windows and lock the door
While I try to dig the Li’l Brown Jug up
Bounce me brother with a solid four

Andrews Sisters – Gimme Some Skin, My Friend

You like my smile
You like my style
Well, why don’t you make me know it?
You like my walk
You like my talk
Well, there’s only one way to show it

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Step right up and take your stand
You don’t have to be timid
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Smack it
Wack it
Let your hand rotate
Show it
Blow it
Put it in your pocket till a future date

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

If you like my style
Well show it
If you like my smile
Let me know it
If you like my walk
Please tell me
If you like my talk
Well, skin me papa, skin me

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem, baby
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Step right up and take your stand
You don’t have to be timid, baby
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Smack it
Wack it my friend
Let your hand rotate
Show it
Blow it
Put it in your pocket till a future date

Step right up (what for) and shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem today, (how do they do it)
Just stick your hand out and give out with the shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin
Gimme some skin
Gimme some skin, my friend
