Darktown Strutters Ball

1917 – Shelton Brooks

I’ll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
Better be ready bout a half past eight
Now, baby- Don’t be late
I wanna be there when
The band starts playin’
Remember when we get there, honey;
Two steps, I’m gonna have ’em all
I’m gonna dance off both my shoes
When they play the Jelly Roll blues
Tomorrow night at the downtown Strutter’s Ball
