Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!

Album: The Scottsboro Boys (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • "Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!" is the opening song from the musical The Scottsboro Boys. Performed as a dance number in minstrel style by the boys themselves, it has an upbeat feel to it, something that can't be said of the actual affair as it was played out in American courtrooms over a decade and more.
  • Like the score for the rest of the show, "Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!" was written by the team of composer John Kander and lyricist by Fred Ebb. >>
