And The Melody Still Lingers On

A long time ago in the 40’sDizzy and bird gave us this songThey called it a night in tunisiaAnd the melody still lingers onIt was new and very strangeBlew the squares right off the stageFew could play alongBut the melody still lingers onMax and miles to name just twoTogether they grewThe music was young and strongAnd the melody still lingers onThey paved the way for generationsFrom coltrane to stevieNo one could stop the winds of changeWithout them where’d we be? The duke and the prez were there beforeThe past you can’t ignoreThe torch is lit, we’ll keep the flameAnd the melody remains the sameIn the 40’sA night in tunisiaIn the 40’sA night in tunisiaIn the 40’sA night in tunisiaIn the 40’sA night in tunisia
