VERSE: That’s the reason I can understand/Jazz is still the king in ev’ry land/When they pass away/Ev’ry dancing hound will say:/”WOW”/And soon they’re
CHORUS: Creepin’ night and day,/In a creepy way,/Down below, where all the little devils play/Ev’ry step is hot,/Like a pepper pot/There’s no chance to get away./Say!/When they step on coal,/Then they pay the toll/Soon you’ll see the tears in ev’rybody’s eyes/While they’re gettting burned,/Here’s the lesson learned:/Dance the Waltz and then you’ll land in Paradise./If the devil takes you by the hand/Blame it on the leader of the band./If you go to well!/With others you can yell/Wow!/Wow!/Wow!
