Nice Work If You Can Get It the Musical - Sweet and Lowdown Lyrics


"Sweet and Lowdown" is a song from Nice Work If You Can Get It the musical performed by Matthew Broderick (Jimmy) and Company.

CHORUS GIRLS:
Grab a cab and go down
To where the band is playing;
Where milk and honey flow down
Where ev'ry one is saying:
"Blow that sweet and low-down!"

Busy as a beaver,
You'll dance until you totter;
You're sure to get the fever
For nothing could be hotter --
Oh, that sweet and low-down!

JEANNIE:(spoken)
All right peoples, peoples listen up! Now today is a very sad
occasion, 'cause tomorrow morning, our own Jimmy Winter is
getting' married for the third time!

JIMMY:(spoken)
Forth time! But this time I'm not marrying some cheep chorus girl!

CHORUS GIRLS:(spoken)
Hey!

JIMMY:(spoken)
Oh sorry cheap chorus girls.

CHORUS GIRLS:(spoken)
It's okay, oh it's fine... etc.

JIMMY:(spoken)
This time I'm marrying a real lady! A respectable lady!
One who's never even been arrested.

ALL:
(Cheer)

JIMMY:( sung)
There's a cabaret in this city I can recommend to you.
Peps you up like electricity when the band is blowing blue.
They play nothing classic, oh no! Down there;
They crave nothing else but the low-down there.
If you need a tonic and the need is chronic --
If you're in a crisis, my advice is...

Grab a cab and go down

CHORUS GIRLS:
Grab a cap and go down

JIMMY:
To where the band is playin'

CHORUS GIRLS:
Where the band is playin'

JIMMY:
Where milk and honey flow down
Where ev'ry one is saying
"Blow

CHORUS GIRLS:
Blow

JIMMY:
that sweet and low-down!"

CHORUS GIRLS:
Low low down

JIMMY:
Busy as a beaver,

CHORUS GIRLS:
Busy as a beaver

JIMMY:
You'll dance until you totter;

CHORUS GIRLS:
Dance until you totter

JIMMY:
You're sure to get the fever

ALL:
For nothing could be hotter Oh,

JIMMY:
that sweet and low-down!
Philosopher or deacon,
You simply have to weaken.

ALL:
Hear those shuffling feet
You can't keep your seat

JIMMY:
Professor,

ALL:(exept Jimmy)
Yeah

JIMMY:
start your beat!

CHORUS GIRLS & GUYS:
Come along, get in it love the syncopation!
The minute they begin it,
You're shouting to the nation oh

JIMMY:
that sweet and low-down

CHORUS GIRLS & GUYS:
Low low down

JIMMY:
I said low down

CHORUS GIRLS & GUYS:
Low low down
Low low down

ALL:
That low down
