[Verse 1] D Honey, honey, can't you hear? G Funny, funny music, dear D Ain't the funny strain goin' to your brain? E7 A7 Like a bottle of wine, fine D Hon', hon' hon', hon', take a chance G One, one one, one little dance D Can't you see them all swaying up the hall? E7 A7 D D7 Let's be gettin' in line [Chorus] G C G Ev'rybody's doin' it, doin' it, doin' it G C Ev'rybody's doin' it, doin' it, doin' it D7 See that ragtime couple over there G Watch them throw their shoulders in the air A7 D Snap their fingers, honey, I declare A7 D D7 It's a bear, it's a bear, it's a bear, there! G C G Ev'rybody's doin' it, doin' it, doin' it G C Ev'rybody's doin' it, doin' it, doin' it D7 Ain't that music touchin' your heart? G Hear that trombone bustin' apart? G Come, come, come, come, let us start D7 G Ev'ry body's doin' it now [Verse 2] D Baby, baby, can't you hear? G Funny, funny music, dear D Honey, don't you smile, let us rest awhile E7 A7 I'm so weak in the chest, rest D Go, go, go, go get a chair G No, no, no, no, leave it there D Honey, if the mob still are on the job E7 A7 D D7 I'm as strong as the rest
