Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band was een Amerikaanse discoband uit The Bronx. De band bestond uit:
Cory Daye, Stony Browder, Mickey Sevilla, Andy Hernandez en August Darnell
Ze brachten drie album uit tussen 1976 en 1979. Hun muziek mengde discobeats met ritmen van genres als calypso, rumba, chachacha en compás.

Hun grootste hit was: Cherchez la femme en ook I'll play the fool bereikte de Top 40.

In 1979 ging de groep uit elkaar. August en Andy formeerden de groepen Kid Creole & the Coconuts en Elbow Bones & the Racketeers. Cory Daye vervolgde ook een succesvolle solo-carrière.



Songtekst

I'll play the fool for you, oh girl
If that will get me over
And I'm gonna go to school again, boy, for you
Just to get my equivalency diploma

There's nothin' honey, that I won't do
When I meet a guy lovely as you
Ain't it funny what a little love can do
(Ain't it kinda funny)
Better than poison, so much stronger than glue

I'll be a joker for you, oh girl
Make you smile when you're feelin' blue
I'll grow a tail or two for you
Spend the rest of my days locked up in the zoo

'Cause there ain't nothin' doubtful daddy, that I won't do
When I meet a guy lovely as you
Ain't it
(Ain't it kinda funny)
So much better than poison, stronger than glue, hey

When your body's close to mine, my baby, ooh
I get a feelin' that's so divine, ooh
Say, blows my mind

Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)

Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)
Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, bop, keep on dancin'
(Keep on dancin', the music blows your mind, yeah, yeah)

I'll play the fool for you, oh, girl
Buy you things that I cannot afford
Now that ya be a two for me, honey, honey, hey
Fix all the phones and lock all the doors

There ain't nothin' baby, that I won't ever do
When I meet a guy who is lovely as you
Ain't it funny, babe, what a little love can do
(Ain't it kinda funny)
It is better than that poison, it's so stronger, stronger than glue

My love, ain't it, ain't it, ain't it kinda, ain't it kinda funny?
When I need to talk with [Incomprehensible] you
No baby, baby, can't ya see? I need you to love me
And always be by my side

(Ain't it kinda loving you)
Love me, baby
Oh baby, oh baby
(Ain't it kinda loving you)
Oh baby, my baby, yeah
(Ain't it kinda loving you)
