Photograph of Louis Jordan.

From Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five, 1934-1940; The Chronogical Classics, 636.

Gee, but you're swell,
When I say swell,
I mean, you're lovely as well,
When I say lovely,
I mean glorious, too,
I'm mad about you,
You're about the grandest thing
That I ever knew!

You got just what it takes,
And I'll admit,
I get the luckiest breaks,
And I mean lucky,
For what else could it be
When a girl like you loves me?
I mean it, honestly,
Gee, but you're swell!

You got just what it takes,
And I'll admit,
I get the luckiest breaks,
And I mean lucky,
For what else could it be
When a girl like you loves me?
I mean it,
Gee, but you're swell!
