Baby, I’m wracking my brain to think of a name
To give to this tune so Barry can croon,
Oh any old thing to give it a fling,
And maybe start everyone home with a swing
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 it complete,
So everyone’s swinging today.
We’ll call it Opus One, it’s up for Sammy Kaye, hey hey hey
It’s Opus One, got to swing that sway, baby
It’s up to Les Brown to make it renown,
And Ray Anthony to rock it for me
Never any doubt you’ll knock yourself out,
Whenever you can hear Opus One.
