HER LYRICS

SPREADIN' THE RHYTHM AROUND
Ted Koehler / Jimmy McHugh


Music everywhere, feet are pattin'

Puttin' tempo in old Manhattan

Everybody is out high hattin'

Spreadin' rhythm around



Everywhere you go trumpets are blarin'

Drums and saxophones rip and tearin'

Everybody you meet is rarin'

Spreadin' rhythm around



Up in Harlem in every flat they give it that zing

Which according to one and all is what they call swing



Those who can't afford silk and satin

Dance with Gigolos who are Latin

Come from Yonkers, the Bronx and Staten

Spreadin' rhythm around
