"Got My Own Thing Now" as written by and James Mathus....







When I was a lad I was a little bit shy.

Something came along and caught my eye.

When I heard the jazz band strike up

I swear I had my mind made up.

Now I'm getting older

Everything is in full swing.

Now I'm getting bolder

Man I've got to do that thing.

I used to walk along with the rest

Now I've got something all my own

Now you've got a little something new.

Broke away somehow.

That's why I'm swinging it

I've got my own thing now!



Children put away your toys

All your little children's games.

Let the jazz band make some noise

Step up ladies and watch out boys.

"Mirror on the wall,

who's the hot band in the hall?"

Let everybody sing

Get on out there and do your thing.
