    I have heard in a song " I´m a scatman" and I don´t know what it means.
    Hola José,

    Bienvenido a los foros.

    Scat singing is a style of very rapid singing of sounds, rather than words, in Jazz. Try a Google search for Scatman Carruthers... he was a master of this style. There may be other meanings as well, but this one, thanks to your question, brought back good memories of listening to scat singers in jazz clubs.

    Un saludo,

    I found this, which may help...The lyric of the song itself explains what ´scat´means.

    Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)
    (Scatting by Scatman John)
    I'm the Scatman
    (Scatting by Scatman John)
    I'm the Scatman
    (Scatting by Scatman John)

    Everybody stutters one way or the other
    So check out my message to you.
    As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back.
    If the Scatman can do it so can you.

    Everybody's sayin' that the Scatman stutters
    But doesn't ever stutter when he sings.
    But what you don't know I'm gonna tell you right now
    That the stutter and the scat is the same thing.

    Any one out there? This is the first time I log into one of these things. Is it working?
    Hombre...Yes, it´s working, but this is a forum, not a chat room, so sometimes hours may go by before you get a response. Paciencia y barrajar.;)
