Buddy Bolden's Blues
Hugh Laurie Lyrics

Thought I heard, Buddy Bolden say
The nasty and dirty, take it away
You're terrible and awful, take it away
I thought I heard him say

Thought I heard, Buddy Bolden shout
Open up that window, and let that bad air out
Open up that window, and let that stinky air out
Thought I heard Buddy Bolden say
Thought I heard judge Fogerty say
Give him 30 days in the market
Take him away
Give him a broom to sweep with
Take him away
Thought I heard him say

Thought I heard Franky Dirson say
Gimme that money, girl,
or I'm gonna, I'm gonna take it away
Gimme that money you owe me, or I'll take it away
Thought I heard Franky Dirson say

According to Jelly Roll Morton, Buddy Bolden would play this tune every day, and the folks at the honky tonks made up these words to go along with it. It's widely considered to be the first ever jazz tune, although there is some debate as to whether Bolden actually invented jazz or if he just played a vibrant and powerful version of ragtime. The Library of Congress has a free recording of Jelly Roll Morton playing this tune and talking about Bolden if you want to know some interesting history
