I'll be down to get you in a taxi, Honey,
You better be ready 'bout half past eight;
Now dearie, don't be late -
I want to be there when the band starts playing.
And remember when we get there, Honey,
Two-steps, I'm goin' to have 'em all.
Goin' to dance out both my shoes
When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues"
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutters' Ball.
