    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotto jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail

    A women is a women and a man ain't nothin' but a male
    A women is a women and a man ain't nothin' but a male
    One good thing about him
    He knows how to jive and wail

    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotto jump, jive and then you wail
    You gotta jump, jive and then you wail

    Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail
    Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail
    Jill stayed up
