Lyrics

VP_000080 Verse 1Where's that music comin' from Listen to that rum-tum-tum Come a little nearer Now it's gettin' clearer Ain't they playin' some That's what I call music sweet Puts the tickle in your feet I know from the metre There's a certain leader Comin' down the street Chorus 1Here comes Rag-time Alexander Dixie's famous band commander No more worry no more blues Ev'rybody run along and get your dancin' shoes When it comes to syncopation That's the best band in creation Oh boy what a time 'Cross the Mason Dixon line Alexander's Band is back in Dixieland Verse 2Now we'll have some harmonies Floatin' on the evenin' breeze When the steamboat loaders And the cotton toters Start their jubilees I'll be down to ev'ry one Just as quick as I can run With my lovin' baby Let me tell you maybe I won't have some fun Chorus 2Hear the clarineter Lordy! Can't he blow Yea bo! Listen to the fiddler I wish I was the fiddler and he was my bow Who is that a moan-in' That's trombone Some groan Here's the little drummer That's the boy that's gonna make me leave my home Oh boy what a time 'Cross the Mason Dixon line Alexander's band is back in Dixieland Chorus 3Listen to the bugle Lordy! Can't he blow Yea bo! Listen to the fiddler I wish I was the fiddler and he was my bow Who is that a moan-in' Saxophone Some groan Here's the little drummer That's the boy that's gonna make me leave my home Oh boy what a time 'Cross the Mason Dixon line Alexander's band is back in Dixieland
