    [Velma]
    Come on, Babe
    Why don't we paint the town?
    And All That Jazz

    I'm gonna rouge my knees
    And roll my stockings down
    And All That Jazz.

    Start the car
    I know a whoopee spot
    Where the gin is cold
    but the piano's hot
    It's just a noisy hall
    Where there's a nightly brawl
    And All
    That
    Jazz!

    Slick your hair
    And wear your buckle shoes
    And All That Jazz!

    I hear that father dip
    Is gonna blow the blues
    And All That Jazz

    Hold on, hon
    We're gonna bunny hug
    I bought some Aspirin
    Down at United Drug

    In case you shake apart
    And want a brand-new start
    To do that -

    [Velma and Company]
    Jazz!
