I'VE BEEN BAILED OUT A TIME OR THREE BEFORE ON THIS SITE, AND CAN ONLY HOPE I HAVEN'T OUTLIVED YOUR TOLERANCE FOR THIS SORT OF CODE-BUSTING.....

This is a tune written and recorded in 1938 by Jabbo Smith. Beside his leading trumpet, he performs vocally. But two lines in the lyrics are undescernible -- to me. To wit:

The opening stanza consists of four separate sentences. The first three I can make out OK; it's the 4th line that's slurred (it immediately follows the sentence "But I refused when I got the news").

The next (and last) slurred sentence occurs just before the final sentence in the song, which is "And wasting all those little arrows on me."

Hopefully there's a kind soul out there with 20/20 hearing (or better yet -- 10/10), who can decipher the diction.

Google up "Jabbo Smith -- How Can Cupid Be So Stupid -- You Tube

With thanks!


Tony
