Breakdown

trio plays
                     jazz
                                         jazz
 straight ahead
 jamming on the eighty-eights
                                      Straight No Chaser
 A funky Monk
 dancing round the ivories
 bass beat
 Chase heat
                                           (blow it, Bill)
 toss it around
 then
                                           break it down
 come on back now
 get out of here
 with                 ba-dat,                        ba-dit,

za-bat,                          za-bat,               za-bat
 so good I just might break down
