Jazzy, I seem to recall you saying that many websites that provide the lyrics for songs are infected with viruses and/or other malware.

I was wondering if you knew of a reliable and safe website for song lyrics?

Unfortunately I don't. I never frequent any lyrics site.

Darn. Thanks, Jazzy. Just curious, if you wanted to know the lyrics of a song, what do you do?

Listen to the song, repeatedly if necessary. Generally the songs I am interested in have quite intelligible lyrics.

Your conversation inspired me to Google the lyrics to Cab Calloway's "The Scat Song" (1932 version).

And here they are! (Hope all of you have heard this one, because it is a classic. If not, see below)

"When your sweetie tells you
Everything'll be okay
Just skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope
Skeetle-at-de-op-de-day
If you feel like shoutin'
Advertise it just this way
And skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope
Skeetle-at-de-op-de-day
Don't give a hang
What words you use at any time
Sing this silly language
Without any reason or rhyme
When you face the preacher
There's only one thing to say
Just skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope Skeetle-at-de-op-day"

Hey! It works for me. Try this at your next traffic ticket stop, or the next time you're facing a shotgun marriage.

Here is the link, but remember to scrub your computer immediately afterwards!
