  • Honey, honey, can't you hear?
    Funny, funny music, dear
    Ain't the funny strain
    Goin' to your brain?

    Like a bottle of wine, fine
    Hon', hon', hon', hon' take a chance
    One, one, one, one little dance
    Can't you see them all

    Swaying up the hall
    Let's be gettin' in line

    Everybody's doin' it
    Doin' it, doin' it
    Everybody's doin' it
    Doin' it, doin' it

    See that ragtime couple over there
    Watch them throw their shoulders in the air
    Snap their fingers
    Honey, I declare

    It's a bear, it's a bear, it's a bear

    Everybody's doin' it
    Doin' it, doin' it
    Everybody's doin' it
    Doin' it, doin' it

    Ain't that music touching your heart
    Hear that trombone bustin' apart?
    Come, come, come, come let us start
    Everybody's doin' it now

    Baby, baby get a stool
    Maybe, maybe I'm a fool
    Honey, don't you smile
    Let us rest a while

    I'm so weak in the chest, best
    Go, go, go, go get a chair
    No, no, no, no leave it there
    Honey, if the mob

    Still are on the job
    I'm as strong as the rest Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
