VERSE 01: Listen, listen, listen at that dreamy music playing?/ It's reminiscent listen what you're missing,/ That tune that keeps you swaying;/ My! but that music sounds so sweet/ I just can't keep still up on my feet,/ 'Cause ragtime music to me is a perfect treat:/ (Because it certainly can't be beat)/ When at a ball you are feeling kinder blue/ Listen, and I'll tell you what to do.
CHORUS: Commence advancing, commence advancing,/ Just start a-prancing, right and left a-glancing,/ A moochee dancing, slide and glide entrancing,/ Do the tango jiggle with a Texas Tommy wiggle,/ Take your partner and hold her,/ Lightly enfold her,/ A little bolder,/ Just work your shoulder, Snap your fingers one and all/ In the hall at the ball that's all
VERSE 02: Swaying, swaying, swaying right and left, each one a-reeling,/ The band's aplaying, swaying, all displaying/ That ragtime moochee feeling;/ Clouds of joy floating 'round the hall/ A reign of happiness seems to fall,/ It is so entrancing while dancing at a ragtime ball:/ (Because it makes a hit with all)/ When at a ball and you feel somewhat blue/ There's but one thing left for you to do.
