Thread Name: Lyr Req: One Two Three O'Lairy (Count Basie, 1940)
Subject: RE: Jazz Lyric '1 2 3 O'Lairy' - Count Basie 1940
Brooklyn in the 50s ball bouncing rhyme:
1, 2, 3 o'leary
4, 5, 6, o'leary
7, 8, 9, o'leary
10 o'leary, I made it

not very thrilling. I think we bounced the ball on the numbers and turned it under a leg on o'leary.
