SCATMAN (Ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop)
by Scatman John Larkin

I'm the Scatman
I'm the Scatman

Everyone stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back
If the Scatman can do it, so can you.

Everybody's saying that the Scatman stutters
But doesn't ever stutter when he sings.
But what you don't know, I'm going to tell you right now
That the stutter and the Scat is the same thing.

You know I'm the Scatman.
Where's the Scatman?
I'm the Scatman.

Why should we be pleasin' any politician's reason?
(They) would try to teach us reasons if they could.
The state of the condition insults my intuition
And it only makes me crazy, and a heart like wood.

Everyone stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back
If the Scatman can do it, brother, so can you.

I'm the Scatman.

I hear you all asked about the meaning of Scat.
Well I'm the professor, and all I can tell you is
While you're still sleepin' the saints are still weepin.'
Those things you call dead haven't yet had a chance to be born.

I'm the Scatman.
