Alberta Hunter – The Darktown Strutters' Ball lyrics
I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey, haw
Please, be ready 'bout half-past eight
Haw, honey, don't be late
'Cause I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm goinna have 'em all
Gonna dance out both my shoes, have mercy
When they play "Jelly Roll Blues"
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutters' Ball

Yes, I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please be ready 'bout half-past eight
Haw, honey, don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna to have 'em all
Gonna to dance out both my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Ha, tomorrow night at the Darktown, talk to me, lay it on me this time

I'm saying I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please be ready 'bout half past eight
Haw, honey, don't be late
Got to be there when the band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna to have 'em all
Gonna to dance out both of my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Ha, tomorrow night at the Darktown, lay it on me

Ready to go, I say, I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please be ready half-past eight
Haw, don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna to have 'em all
Gonna to dance out both of my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Haw, tomorrow night, don't stop, play it Jim, come on, come on, there you go

Oh, play it for me
I'm gonna take my shoes off, my feet are aching

Yes, I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please, be ready 'bout half-past eight
Oh, honey, don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna have 'em all
Gonna dance out both my shoes
When they play "Jelly Roll Blues"
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutters' Ball, oh, play it for me, play it some more

I said, down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please be ready 'bout half past eight
Haw, honey, don't be late
I want to be there when that band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna to have 'em all
Gonna to dance out both of my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Ha, tomorrow night at the Darktown, yes, I'm ranting, go

I say, I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Please be ready 'bout half past eight
Haw, honey, don't be late
I want to be there when that band starts playing
Remember, when we get there, honey
Two-steps, I'm gonna to have 'em all
Gonna to dance out one of my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Ha, tomorrow night, yes
Ha, by tomorrow night
Oh, Saturday night
At the Darktown Strutter's Ball
