Stock Music track: Have I Got a Deal for You

Hot big band blazes a path for humorous male crooner lyrics. Clever metaphors poke fun at salespeople and being promised that deal that’s just too good to be true. Medium up-tempo swing.

Lyrics: Have I got a deal for you
Have I got a deal for you
You can’t go broke; there’s no mirrors or smoke
And you could score big too
Now it will only set you back a few
It’s a one-of-a-kind; it’ll blow your mind
If you only knew
Have I got a deal

Yes the market’s been down
They’re selling flesh by the pound
Don’t worry ‘bout that
Sure the motor won’t start
But it’s just a simple part
Don’t worry ‘bout that
Now the people upstairs are nice
And the people downstairs are never home

Well the minute that I saw you I knew
Now here’s someone that knows what to do
Have I got a deal for you

Have I got a deal for you
Have I got a deal for you
It’s solid through and through
It’s the chance of a life; better not tell the wife
That’s the best thing to do
But there’s others waiting in the cue
Could be one of those things that turns pawns into kings
I’d be lying if it wasn’t true
Have I got a deal

Yes the traffic is bad
But it’s not the worst you’ve had
C’mon
If you sign here on the line
Everything will be just fine
C’mon
Now you tell two friends
And then they tell two friends

C’mon and make your dreams come true
It’ll only set you back a few
Have I got a deal for you

The parking is free
It’s included in the fee
So don’t worry ‘bout that
I’ve got to tell you straight
You really shouldn’t wait
Tomorrow is too late
Now you tell two friends
And then they tell two friends

It only hurts a second or two
Just as soon as the card goes through
Have I got a deal for you

About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
