VERSE 01: I came to town just to take in the sights,/ I heard about all the music and lights;/ I've seen each café, ev'ry cabaret,/ I want to tell you I'm disappointed./ Take it from me down in Old Tennessee,/ For what you've been paying, why, we get it free!/ Just come along and see,/ follow the crowd with me,/ Down to the levee at night.
CHORUS: You'll see them dancing to the banjo's ringing,/ You'll see them prancing And hear them singing,/ Get over Sal! get over Sal!/ Go get your baby doll, Just show your gal the levee./ With the new dances a chance they're taking,/ You'll have to laugh till your sides are aching,/ Most any night, it's a wonderful sight,/ At the Mississippi cabaret.
VERSE 02: Most ev'ry one in the town will be there,/ Down on the levee you'll notice the Mayor;/ See him dance around, acting like a clown,/ He's sixty-two, but he looks much younger./ Whistles a-blowin' the boats in the stream,/ They keep it going, till they're out of steam./ It's like a jubilee,/ that's where I want to be,/ Down to the levee at night
