[Verse 1] A Hear that band a-playing at the Ragtime Ball? E7 See those Couples swayin' up and down the hall Pansey Anna Lincoln tells her partner "I'm a-thinkin' honey" A - Ain't that some Band? - That rag is grand I Could keep on glidin to it till I drop A A7 D Boo, looks like they're goin' to stop Bm A Tell all the boys, to make a noise Cdim G#7 Make 'em play some more E Cdim E Cdim Music man, If you can E Cdim E7 Play one more encore [Chorus] Bm E7 'Cause I Love it, love it goodness how I love it A such a swingin', clingin', tune that's got me wingin' E7 It's the most per-suad-ing musical strain A professor Please, please play it again Bm E7 Go on and Rag it, drag it get your shoes in motion A 'cause I'm floatin', floatin', on a raggy ocean Bm A I could dance all night and never get through E7 A Because I love it love it most as much as I love you [Verse 2] Goodness ain't it great to glide away with you Never been to heaven, hon', but this will do Ain't that tune a beauty cutey, just as sweet as tutti-fruiti - Keep clinging babe, - Keep swinging babe When I marry they must play this music while I am marching up the aisle, Want you to know, I love it so When you dance so sweet I'd be glad, if had Six more pairs of feet
