Sunday Whirl: The words given are:
anything,crazy, cave,chattering,cut,giggle,load
moonshine,scoop,sense,shatters,splits,wake

Man and his plaything
Have trumpet will travel
A cut above the rest
A legend in his time

A frog in his throat
The shattering boom of his voice
Splits the air, just crazy

Hello Dolly! Oh, Hello Dolly!

The roof caved in
And the giggle faintly audible
The chattering stopped
The moonshine boys took a breather
They stopped loading their barrels
in the wake of his mesmerizing tunes
A musical scoop, an extravaganza
Anything and everything

Sock it to them, Satchmo
They sensed a heavenly evening

  7. Satchmo was certainly a great artistic ambassador for his time, great memories of the movies he was in.
