Greetings,

what I am looking for is the lyrics of the song called "Changes" by University Six [California Ramblers], Harmony H-551, 1927. Available background info on the tune is also more than welcome! Thank you very much in advance!

Thank you for pointing me in this direction. It is a great a source of information but unfortunately has no lyrics, at least for this specific song. Any more ideas?

best

First line of verse: "Changes! Changes! That's all he can play...."

First line of chorus: "Beautiful changes in diff'rent keys...."

In the recording by the University Six (which you can hear at the Red Hot Jazz Archive—see Alan's link above) only the chorus us sung. I listened, and here's what I think I hear:

CHORUS: He plays those beautiful changes in diff'rent keys,
Beautiful changes and harmonies.
He starts in B, then changes to D.
He's fooling around, most any old key
What's that? Hear that minor strain.
That's it! There's his note again.
There's so many babies that he can squeeze,
And he's only changing those keys

You can also hear this recording at the Red Hot Jazz Archive:

CHANGES
As performed by Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, featuring Bix Beiderbecke, Bing Crosby and the Rhythm Boys, 1927.

Beautiful changes in diff'rent keys,
Beautiful changes and harmonies.
He starts in C, then changes to D.
He's foolin' around, 'most any old key.
What's that? Hear that minor strain.
[ONE LINE OF SCAT SINGING]
There's so many babies that he can squeeze,
And he's always changing those keys.

First he changes into B, changes into C,
Changes into D, changes into E,
As easy as the weatherman.
Now he gettin' kind o' cold, gettin' kind o' hot,
Listen, I forgot: since he was a tot,
He's been the talk of Dixieland.
