Benny Goodman, Band Leader

Benny Goodman, Band Leader

A letter was left in mailbox I wanted to see

Which had been only meant for me;

When I opened it and did read;

Was about a band someone did lead.

Last name was Goodman and first Benny;

Times we played together had been many;

For music he always had a natural knack;

Fans wanted him to keep coming back.

People would cheer and hands clap;

Him on his back would often slap;

Great music put you in the mood

After his band you heard and viewed.

Now that the days have all gone by,

And here at home I often cry;

Many happy times there had been;

Wish God would bring him back again.
