Count Basie on a rainy night. 29 Sept./10

I’ve got nothing to do
nothing to say
nowhere to go
no one to meet
so I’m sitting here alone
at home
listening to Count Basie
Basie swings
he’s swinging in Newport
live in Newport
long time ago
but now
with Illinois Jacquet
and Lester Young
and Roy Eldridge
and Jimmy Rushing
and Joe Jones
and me
here alone
on a rainy night
listening to Count Basie
what a night.
