AT THE BALL, THAT'S ALL From the Harlem Show "My Friend From Kentucky" (1913) (J. Leubrie Hill) Morton Harvey - 1914 Victor Military Band (Instr.) - 1914 Henry Mayo & Harry Tally - 1915 The Avalon Boys (feat. in the film "Way Out West") - 1937 Also recorded by: Terry Blaine; Ian Whitcomb; Tim O'Brien; Paragon Ragtime Orch. Listen, listen, listen at that dreamy music playing It's reminiscent, listen what you're missing That tune that keeps you swaying My, but that music sounds so sweet I just can't keep still upon my feet 'Cause my ragtime music to me is a perfect treat Because it certainly can't be beat When at a ball you are felling kinda blue Listen and I'll tell you what to do Commence advancing, commence advancing Just start a-prancing, right and left a-glancing A moochee dancing, slide and glide entrancing Do the tango jiggle with a Texas Tommy wiggle Take your partner and hold her Lightly enfold her, a little bolder Just work your shoulder Snap your fingers one and all In the hall a the ball, that's all! Swaying, swaying, swaying right and left Each one a-reeling The band's a-playing, swaying, all displaying That ragtime moochee feeling Clouds of joy floating 'round the hall A reign of happiness seems to fall It is so entrancing while dancing at a ragtime ball Because it makes a hit with all When at a ball you feel somewhat blue There's but one thing left for you to do Commence advancing, commence advancing Just start a-prancing, right and left a-glancing A moochee dancing, slide and glide entrancing Do the tango jiggle with a Texas Tommy wiggle Take your partner and hold her Lightly enfold her, a little bolder Just work your shoulder Snap your fingers one and all In the hall a the ball, that's all!
