My duo is doing this now. Here's our take on verse 3 based on (mis)hearing of the Earl Jackson version:Good morning, brains trust.
Listening to "If I Had a Genie", the Watson version and for the life of me parts of the 3rd verse are like Sanskrit. The Johnny Otis original doesn't appear to be available online, so I was wondering if anyone here can decipher the words?
Move to my estate
Service better still
Day and all night service if you just pay the bill
Wake up in the morning have my tray in my bed
Drive my '49 Cadillac
Keep from turning my head
Then I'd groove
That is if I had one.
I don't think it can possibly be completely right. For one thing, I think it was recorded in '47 before '49 Cadillacs were around. Actually it sounds like he sings '79 Cadillac but that can't be right. Anyway, it's a start and if anybody can correct this we'd be happy too.
