Tampa Red intro spoken:

Oh, get up ladies and gentlemen, get up
C'mon, let's have a little fun, will you?
You gonna sit there wit' the one little spot
It'll be all night.
C'mon, c'mon take a dance
While the band is all gettin' set here and ready
Ladies and gentlemen, c'mon dance, will ya?
I think they're ready right now, let's see
C'mon, boys what d'ya say?

(kazoo & clarinet instrumental)

I wished for lovely night
And my gal to hold me tight
That's the way I do, when I wanna make love

'How bout that, high'

I want a lovely song to sing
I want kisses an ev'rything
That's the way I do, when I want to make love

'Don't you do the same thing, boy? '

When she starts baby talkin'
Then, I'll do baby talk, too - yeah man!
I say, papa's little hootsie, tootsie, wootsie
Your daddy do love you

'You know what I'm talkin' about then?

Wish for a night in June
And my feeling come so soon
That's the way I do, when I want to make love

'Get it now boys, get it now'

(instrumental)

And if she starts t' baby talkin'
Then, I'll do baby talk, too
I'll say-a, papa's little hootsie, tootsie, wootsie
Your daddy do love you - yeah!

And I wish for a night in June
And my dream, you come so soon
That's the way I do, when I want to make love.
