Song Author Duke Ellington Performer: Ella Fitzgerald Submitted by: kjartansverrisson


[Em]What good is [D]melody, w[C]hat good is [C7]mu - [B7]sic   
[Em]If it ain't p[D]ossessin' [C]something sw[C7]eet? [B7]    
[Em]It ain't the [D]melody, [C]it ain't the [C7]mu - [B7]sic --
There's [Em]something else that m[D]akes the [C]tune comp[C7]lete.[B7]    

It [Em]don't mean a t[B+]hing, if it [Em7]ain't got that [Em6]swing --
[A7]Doo-wat doo-wat, [D7]doo-wat doo-wat, [G6]doo-wat doo-wat. [C7]    [B7]    
It [Em]don't mean a t[B+]hing, all you [Em7]got to do is [Em6]sing --
[A7]Doo-wat doo-wat, [D7]doo-wat doo-wat, [G6]doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat.

Dm7 G7 CM7/6 CM7
It makes no diff'rence if that rhythm's sweet or hot,
[Em7]Just give that [A7]rhythm [D7]ev'rything you [C7]got. [B7]    

It [Em]don't mean a t[B+]hing,[Cdim] if it [Em7]ain't [Cdim]got that s[Em6]wing --
[A7]Doo-wat doo-wat, [D7]doo-wat doo-wat, [G6]doo-wat doo-wat, [Gdim]doo-wat doo-wat,
[A7]Doo-wat doo-wat, [Cdim]doo-wat doo-wat, doo-w[G6]aaaa.

What good is melody, what good is mu - sic
If it ain't possessin' something sweet?
It ain't the melody, it ain't the mu - sic --
There's something else that makes the tune complete.

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing --
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat.
It don't mean a thing, all you got to do is sing --
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat.

Dm7 G7 CM7/6 CM7
It makes no diff'rence if that rhythm's sweet or hot,
Just give that rhythm ev'rything you got.

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing --
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat,
Doo-wat doo-wat, doo-wat doo-wat, doo-waaaa.
