[Answered] Doin' The Jive, Glenn Miller

Hi!
A friend asked me what swing song has the lyrics "Clap your hands, stomp your feet". A man and a woman singing.

It seems a little familiar but I can recollect what song it might be.

Can you help me find what song it is?

In the British tv-series Jeeves & Wooster there is an additional intro to the song, I don't know if it was there in the original.

Good enough to keep (Airmail special)

I found a video clip* where Benny Goodman refer to Airmail Special as Good Enough To Keep, I suspect there is a story behind those names, does anyone know the background? Is it maybe like C Jam Blues and Duke's Place (without and with lyrics)? Tell me. * http://swingjazzblues.blogspot.com/2008/01/be...
