Lyrics[edit]

During the episode[edit]

Lift me won't you lift me
Above the old routine
Make it nice
Play it clean
Jazzman!
When the Jazzman's testifyin',
A faithless man believes.
He can sing you into paradise,
Or bring you to your knees.
Jazzman, take my blues away,
Make my pain the same as yours with every change you play.
Jazzman, oh, Jazzman.

Reprise[edit]

Lisa:

When the Jazzman's testifyin',
A faithless man believes.
He can sing you into paradise,
Or bring you to your knees.
Jazzman, take my blues away,
Make my pain the same as yours with every change you play.
Jazzman, oh, Jazzman.
One more time.

Bleeding Gums Murphy:

Oh, come on, Lisa.
I got a date with Billie Holiday.
