Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Lyric from Gordon Phillips.

YOU JUST DO WHAT YOU LIKE
Oh, yes, you told me the money’s there;
But you’ve been spendin’ without a care.
If you did what you said,
But you don’t.
You just do what you like.
------
Just wait till pay day, that’s what you said;
But all the money went to your head.
If you did what you said,
But you don’t.
You just do what you like.
-----
I’m tired of hearin’ – don’t say a word
For nothin’ changed from what I’ve heard.
If you did what you said,
But you don’t.
You just do what you like.
-----
It don’t matter about me, oh, no
You just do what you like (recit. Freely)
