Dinah
Bing Crosby Lyrics


Dinah
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her
Show her to me

Dinah
Got those Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gazin'
To the eyes of Dinah Lee

Every night why do I
Shake with fright?
'Cause my Dinah might
Change her mind about me

Oh, Dinah
Should you wander to China
I would hop an ocean liner
Just to be with Dinah Lee

Dinah
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her and you know her
Show her to me

Dinah
Got those Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gazin'
To the eyes of Dinah Lee

My Dinah every night why do I
Shake with fright?
Because my Dinah might
Change her mind about me

Dinah
If you wander to China
I would hop an ocean liner
Just to be with Dinah Lee

Every night why do I
Shake with fright?
'Cause my Dinah might
Change her mind about me

The name of this song is Dinah
Said it
The name of this song is Dinah
Snag it
The name of this song is Dinah
Ah, tell it
The name of this song is Dinah

Dinah
Wander to China
The state of Carolina
Listen, and you know her
I would like to have you show her to me

Dinah
Got those Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gazin'
To the eyes of Dinah Lee

Oh, Dinah
Should you wander to China
I would get me an ocean liner
Just to be with Dinah Lee

My name is Dinah and I've heard about this song my whole life, but never listened to it until now...it's lovely:)

Bing Cosby isnt the original composter, but still amazing cover.

Bing Crosby, at the time that he was doing the singing that would put him in the MUSIC (as opposed to ENTERTAINMENT) history books, in the company of the Mills Bros., at the point in their career where they were the GREATEST a capella vocal group in the world.
What a gem.
(Please note:
At 1:16 the band, with the exception of the guitar, drops out entirely, the Mills Bros. begin, and everything you're hearing from that point on is being produced by the vox humana, until about 2:02, when the instrumentalists resume.)

That scatting bit in the middle is a revelation. It still sounds fresh almost 90 years later.

Brilliant, I just love this song, Danny's version is great too. It seems people have forgotten though about Cliff Edwards' wonderful take on the song.

Bing Crosby's voice is timeless in my opinion the best voice of all time

Aaron McGhee

This is one of my favourite recordings of all time.

You just can't beat Bing. But Benny Goodman's quartet does a damn good job.
