Hank Snow - Lyrics


Country Guitar - Album




Twelfth Street Rag


 
In a certain city, where

The girls are cute and pretty,

They have a raggy jazzy jazz time tune.

When you hear that syncopated

Jazz created melody

You could dance all morning

Night and noon,

When the slide trombone

And moaning saxophone begin to play.

It will make you sad,

'Twill make you glad

Oh! Boy,

What Joy,

Burn my clothes for I'm in Heaven,

Wish I had a million women,

Soloman in all his glory,

Could have told another story,

Were he but living here today,

With his thousand wives or more,

A Jazz Band on some Egypt shore,

He could dance the night and day away.

I will tell you how they dance

That tantalizing 12th. Street Rag.



Chorus:

First you slide and then you glide,

Then shimmie for a while;

To the left then to the right



"Lame Duck" "Get over Sal"

Watch your step then Pirouette,

Fox Trot, then squeeze your pal

Over you comes stealing

Such a funny feeling

'Til you feel

Your senses reeling,

Tantalizing, hypnotizing,

Mesmerizing strain,

I can't get enough of it

Please play it o'er again

I could dance for ever

To this refrain,

To that 12th. Street,

Oh you 12th. Street Rag.
