"The Darktown Strutters' Ball" by Shelton Brooks

Verse 1:

I've got some good news, Honey,
An invitation to the Darktown Ball
It's a very swell affair
All the highbrows will be there

I'll wear my high silk hat and my frock tail coat
You wear your Paris gown and your new silk shawl
Ain't no doubt about it, Babe,
We'll be the best dressed in the hall.

Chorus:

I'll be [Bb]down to get you in a taxi, Honey,
[G7]You better be ready 'bout half past eight
[C7]Now dearie, [F7]don't be late,
I want to [Bb]be there when the [F7]band starts playing

And re[Bb]member when we get there, Honey,
[G7]Two-steps, I'm goin' to have 'em all:
Goin' to [Eb]dance out both my [A7]shoes
When they [Bb]play the "Jelly Roll [G7]Blues"
To[C7]morrow night at the [F7]Darktown Strutters' [Bb]Ball.

Verse 2:

We'll meet out high-toned neighbors
An exhibition of the "Baby Dolls"
And each one will do their best
Just to out-class all the rest

And there'll be dancers from ev'ry foreign land
The Classic, Buck and Wing, and the Wooden Clog
We'll win that fifty dollar prize
When we step out and Walk the Dog.

Chorus
