You’re My Excitement

Notes:
An uptempo blues with a boogie-woogie beat, written for The Adventurers Club, Walt Disney World, Florida.


They tell me that adventure
Is danger plus fun
That adds up to excitement
And you’re the most exciting one

     You’re my excitement
     With you I cannot sit still
     You’re my excitement, baby
     The one who gives me a thrill

I went out mountain climbing
Scaled a mighty peak
But I can get much higher
When we’re dancing cheek to cheek

     You’re my excitement
     Higher than any hill
     You’re my excitement, baby
     The one who gives me a thrill

I went up to the arctic
Fifty-five below
But when I dreamed a dream of you
I melted all the snow

     You’re my excitement
     Our love is sizzling on the grill
     You’re my excitement, baby
     The one who gives me a thrill

Tried hard to forget you
Went to Timbuktu
I had a whole damn harem
But I only thought of you

     You’re my excitement
     Couldn’t do jack without my Jill
     You’re my excitement, baby
     The one who gives me a thrill
