about

A clever song blurring the lines between rockabilly and swing. It has a smart-arsed lyric full of innuendo blended with a sophisticated Count Basie style brass arrangement. It's funny, it's cool and it swings like crazy.

lyrics

My baby says I ain't no catch
But I don’t care too much ‘bout that
Got no fancy clothes no cash no 4x4
But she’s always there knockin’ at my door

She loves my great big swingin’ thing
It gets her in a spin
45's stacked to the sky from Basie to the King
It’s a jumpin' thumpin' record machine
The coolest thing you’ve ever seen
My baby she can’t wait to play
My great big swingin’ thing

I put some coins into the slot
Then She’s rockin' rollin' 'round the clock
It groans, it shakes, it glows in the dark
My baby she can't wait to start

On my great big swingin’ thing
It gets her in a spin
45's stacked to the sky from Basie to the King
It’s a jumpin' thumpin' record machine
The coolest thing you’ve ever seen
My baby she can’t wait to play
My great big swingin’ thing

And the word is gettin' round
Big Mitch has got the hottest jive in town

Drums and bass, guitar and sax
I'll fly her to the moon and back
Swingin' down the street of dreams
My Werlie's poundin' blowin' steam

She loves my great big swingin’ thing
It gets her in a spin
45's stacked to the sky from Basie to the King
It’s a jumpin' thumpin' record machine
The coolest thing you’ve ever seen
My baby she can’t wait to play
My great big swingin’ thing
It gets her in a spin
45s stacked to the sky from Basie to the King
It’s a jumpin' thumpin' record machine
The coolest thing you’ve ever seen
My baby she can’t wait to play
My great big swingin’ thing
My great big swingin’ thing
My great big swingin’ thing
Great Big Swingin' Thing!
