Lyrics: Just a little gift from me to you
A token of my appreciation for all the things you do
It's not much I know, but it's straight from the heart
You've been a rock from the start
And all the way through

Just a little gift don't ask the price
Pay it forward once, it comes back twice
Here's a brand new set of steak knives
Some walking around cash too
Just a little gift from me to you

It's not much I know, but it's straight from the heart
I'm just doing my part just like you do

No need to reciprocate
Don't worry about the price
Pay it forward once it comes back twice
The thought is what really counts
You might have heard that too
Just a little gift from me to you
Just a little gift from me to 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.
