Ella Fitzgerald – Darktown Strutters' Ball lyrics
I'll be down to get you in a taxi honey
Better be ready 'bout half past eight
I mean don't be late
Be there when the band starts playin'

Remember when you get there honey
Dance all over the floor, dance all over my shoes
When the band plays the Jelly Roll blues
Set 'em all alight at the darktown strutters ball

I'll be down to get you in a push cart honey
Better be ready 'bout half past eight
I mean don't be late
Be there when the band starts playin'

'Member when you get there honey
Shim sham wins them all, dance all over my shoes
When the band plays the Jelly Roll's blues
Set 'em all alight, the darktown strutters ball
