in a mellow tone lyrics – manhattan transfer

in a mellow tone
feelin’ fancy free
and i’m not alone
i’ve got company
everything’s ok
the live-long day
with this mellow song
i can’t go wrong

in a mellow tone
that’s the way to live
if you mope and groan
something’s gotta give
just go your way
and laugh and play
you know there’s joy unknown
in a mellow tone

(excellent scat section here)

in — a mellow tone
that’s the way to live
if you mope and groan
something’s got to give
just go your way
and laugh and play
you know there’s joy unknown
in a mellow tone
just go your way
and laugh and play
you know there’s joy unknown
in a mellow tone

in a mellow tone
