(Walter Donaldson/Edgar Leslie)
When you hear sweet syncopation
And the music softly moans
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around in your bones


When it gets too hot for comfot
And you can't get an ice cream cone
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around your bones


Just like those bamboo babies
Down in the South Sea tropic zone
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around your bones
