MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Swingin' Machine

MOSE ALLISON
"Swingin' Machine"
(Mose Allison)

Are you tired?
Are you uninspired?
If you're bored
Then you just can't afford
To miss out on the scene
When I unveil my little Swingin' Machine

I worked years, through sweat and tears
I made tests, trying to find the best
You'll know just what I mean
When I turn on my little Swingin' Machine

Sometimes it gets a little hard to start
Sometimes I think it's gonna do no part
But when it working just like a charm
It keeps me from going back to the farm

So look neat
And don't you drag your feet
Just turn loose
Have a drink of juice
You'll know just what I mean
When I turn on my little Swingin' Machine

When my machine ain't workin' right
I walk the floor, can't sleep at night
But when it really starts to percolate
I feel like I'm the master of my fate

Take a tip
Don't be over-hip
Just reach out
See what it's all about
You know it's much more felt than seen
I'm talking about my little Swingin' Machine
