Ballin' The Jack
James Henry Burris/Chris Smith, 1913

Here's a new dance we oughta show 'em how to do
This is the chance to really show them something new
Are you ready
Ready and waiting sir Well ok

First you put your two knees close up tight
Then you sway 'em to the left and then you sway 'em to the right
Step around the floor kinda nice and light
Then you twist around twist around with all of your might
Put your loving arms straight out in space
Do the easy rock with style and grace
Swing your foot way around and bring it back
Now that's what I call ballin' the jack

First you put your two knees close up tight
Then you sway 'em to the left and then you sway 'em to the right
