Darktown Strutter's Ball

I'll be down to get you in a taxi honey
You better be ready 'bout a half past eight
Now dearie don't be late
I wanna be there when the band starts playin'
Remember when we get there honey
The two-steps I'm gonna have a ball
I'm gonna dance off both my shoes
When they play the Jelly roll blues
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutter's Ball
Alexander's Ragtime Band
Come on and hear, come on and hear


Alexander's Ragtime Band

Come on and hear, come on and hear
It's the best band in the land
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
So natural that you wanna go to war
That's Just the bestest band what am, honey lamb
Come on along, come on along let me take you by the hand
Unto the man, unto the man who's the leader of the band
And if you care to hear that Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band

 


Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

They made him blow a bugle for his uncle Sam
They really brought him down because he couldn't Jam
The captain seemed to understand
Because the next day the capt' went out and drafted a band
But now the company jumped when he played reveille
He's the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B
And now a tootly auta tootly auta toot toot
He blows it eight to the bar in boogie rhythm
He can't blow a note if the bass guitar isn't with him
And the company Jumped when he played reveille
He's the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B
