Louis Armstrong – Hellzapoppin' lyrics

Hold your hats... The roof is 'bout to tumble in
Holy cats... The walls and floors are crumblin'
Hellzapoppin'... Hellzapoppin'... Hellzapoppin'
The whole gang's whoopin' up the whoop-de-doo

Me oh my... It's gonna be uproarious
We'll fly high... Tonight we'll be notorious
Hellzapoppin'... Hellzapoppin'... Hellzapoppin'
And you're invited to the party too

Better look out... Ain't no cook-out
We're playin' this one by ear
We through the book out

It's a bash... The signs are unmistakable
What a smash... We're breakin' all that's breakable
There's no stoppin'... Hellzapoppin'... Why not drop in
We won't stop until the night is through


We won't tire... We'll fly higher
We'll be hotter by far
Than a floor on fire

Raise your glass... The party will be riotous
What a gas... The cops will never quiet us
There's no stoppin'... Hellzapoppin'... Hellzapoppin'
We'll be hellzapoppin' till the night is through
