Got an invitation to a dance,
so get ready, quick for to prance.
I'll be down to get you in a Taxi,
honey, better be ready
'bout half past eight.
Now dearie, don't be late,
want to be there when the band starts playing.
Remember when we get there, Honey,
the 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.
