Track Title: Got My Own Thing Now Album Title: Hot Prime Artist: Squirrel Nut Zippers Written by: Jim Mathus Lyrics: When I was a lad, I was a little bit shy. Something came along and caught my eye. When I heard the jazz band strike up, I swear, I had my mind made up. Now I'm getting older Everything is in full swing. Now I'm getting bolder Man, I've got to do that thing. I used to walk along with the rest Now I've got something all my own Now you've got a little something new. Broke away, somehow. That's why I'm swinging it I've got my own thing now! Children put away your toys All your little children's games. Let the jazz band make some noise Step up ladies and watch out boys. "Mirror on the wall, who's the hot band in the hall?" Let everybody sing Get on out there and do your thing.
