MACPHERSON IS REHEARSIN (TO SWING)
Ella Fitzgerald


Oh McPherson is rehearsin'
And the bagpipes are reversin'
While McPherson is rehearsin' to swing
And from Edinburgh to Dundee
Every lad and every lassie
Knows McPherson is rehearsin' to swing
Och I dinna care said Sandy
If the elders now approve
I've a chick where plans are dandy
And I'm in a mellow groove
Now the bonnie bonnie lassies
With the kilties on their chassis
Have forgotten all about the highland fling
Young and old folks get together
And ther's truckin' in the heather
When McPherson is rehearsin' to swing

Och I dinna care said Sandy
If the elders now approve
I've a chick where plans are dandy
And I'm in a mellow groove
Now the bonnie bonnie lassies
With the kilties on their chassis
Have forgotten all about the highland fling
Young and old folks get together
And ther's truckin' in the heather
When McPherson is rehearsin' to swing
