Lyrics

Lyrics:
First verse
Mister let me tell you this is no place to be I just got to beat it you can take it from me Slip on your tuxedo and grab up your hat No use hanging round this flat Let's all go
Chorus
Down to the hall down to that Ebony ball That's one place I always lose those doggone Indigo blues because I'm sure to meet my Honey the gal that gets my money. Mister Jazz and his band They sure do make you feel grand My goodness how they can play while with your baby you sway They are Jazzin' the Blues away. Lets all go Down to the hall down to that Ebony ball That's one place I always lose those doggone Indigo blues because I'm sure to meet my Honey the gal that gets my money. Mister Jazz and his band They sure do make you feel grand My goodness how they can play while with your baby you sway They are Jazzin' the Blues away.
Second verse
Wait until you hear that moanin' groanin' trombone Played by Alexander he can't let it alone Crashing of them symbols fills you with pep Ev'ry body watch your step Let's all go
(Chorus)

Content Disclaimer

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.

Jazzin' the Blues Away / music by Dick Heinrich; words by Jeff Branen
