I used to play slow
But now I play it fast
I used to play slow
But now I play fast
Just to see the women
Shake their yas, yas, yas

(piano & guitar)

Now I am a man that ev'rybody know
I am a man an that ev'rybody knows
An you can see a crowd
Ev'rywhere he goes

(piano & guitar)

'Play it fast, boy'

Ramble an I ramble
'Till about the break of day
Ramble an I ramble
'Till about the break of day
I think it's time now
To stop my ramblin' ways

(piano & guitar)

My name is Peetie
I'm on the line you bet
Yoo-hoo-well, I'm on the line you bet
I got somethin' new
That I ain't never told you yet

(piano rag)

'Now get down there for a change'

(piano boogie)
