Hot Lips

"Hot Lips" ("When He Plays Jazz He's Got - Hot Lips") is a popular song written by Henry Busse, Henry Lange, and Lou Davis. First published in 1922, it was advertised it as "A Blues Fox Trot Song" The song is about a trumpet player. The chorus is:

He's got hot lips— When he plays Jazz,
He draws out step,— Like no one has,
You're on your toes,— And shake your shoes,
Boy, how he goes— When he plays Blues.
I watch the crowd— Until he's through,
He can be proud— They're "cuckoo,' too;
His music's rare You must declare,— The boy is there
With two hot lips, He's got hot lips.

The song has been recorded many, many times. The initial issue was by Paul Whiteman's ochestra of which Busse was a member at the time.
