Get Yourself A New Broom (And Sweep The Blues Away) by Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra with vocals by Ivy Anderson - 1933

An MP3 from Martin's 78 Turntable (no longer online)

Lyrics (Singing Starts at 0:46):

Take your last red penny, borrow some if you haven't any
Buy yourself a new broom and sweep the blues away
Spend a half a dollar if you don't you're a horses collar
Tidy up that blue room and keep the blues away
Unless I miss my guess happiness doesn't hide around corners
Get wise use your eyes maybe you'll get a pleasant surprise
Ain't that a hard luck story everything will be hunky-dory
Get yourself a new broom and sweep the blues away.
