Not for tickets to the game
Not for lotto winning numbers
Not for fortune and fame

Not for cold beers in the summer sun
Not for a sunset view
Not for green grass on the other side

Priority review
I won't barter for you
You know my love is true

Maybe for world peace I'd consider it
Maybe for God and man
But not for all the tea in China
And they've got a lot of tea in China

Not for Johnny Hartman's baritone
Not for Rhapsody in Blue
Not for one for my baby

Priority review
I won't barter for you
You know my love is true

Maybe for Christmas Day for poor kids
Maybe to cure some bad disease
But not for all the tea in China
Not for all the tea in China
And they've got a lot of tea in China

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.
