parker’s band lyrics – dan steely

savoy sides presents a new saxophone sensation
it’s parker’s band with a smooth style of syncopation
kansas city born and growing
you won’t believe what the boys are blowing

you got to come on man
and take a piece of mister parker’s band

you’ll be riding by, bareback on your armadillo
you’ll be grooving high or relaxin’ at camarillo
suddenly the music hits you
it’s a bird in flight that just can’t quit you

you got to come on man
and take a piece of mister parker’s band

we will spend a dizzy weekend smacked into a trance
me and you will listen to
a little bit of what made the preacher dance

bring your h*rn along and you can add to the pure confection
and if you can’t fly you’ll have to move in with the rhythm section
either way you’re bound to function
fifty-second street’s the junction

you got to come on man
and take a piece of mister parker’s
clap your hands and take a piece of mister parker’s
come on man and take a piece of mister parker’s band
