Alligator Rag

lyrics

Let’s Rag! Let’s move on, the fog’s coming down.
Stand up! Wiggle on in the swamp dance.
Ev’ry creature dance!
Let’s Rag! Let’s groove on, the fog’s coming down.
Stand up! Let’s shake on with the swamp dance.
Alligator Rag!

Somebody saw through the glass
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 alligators
crawling up and down all over Frenchman Street.
The trumpet sounds “paparapa”,
The drums don’t stop. Go up to the roof!
The Spotted Cat is meowing, tasting its night snack.

Let’s Rag! Let’s move on, the fog’s coming down.
Stand up! Wiggle on in the swamp dance.

And no more circus, no!
No more peanuts, no!
Freedom and dancing in the swamp.
Throw the helm right out
and break the cranck.
Freedom and dancing in the swamp.

Indeed, the dance of our swamp
will last a thousand nights,
It was the omen of the one
who looked us straight in the eye
And finally, the long awaited...
Endless evening is here.
