CLAP YO' HANDS George Gershwin (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1926 as rec by Whispering Jack Smith Dec 1st 1926 New York also rec by- Roger Wolfe Kahn & his Orch '30 Chris Connor '57 The Merry Macs Come on, you children, gather around, Gather arond, you children, And we will lose that evil spirit Called the Voodoo, Voodoo! Nothing but trouble if he has found, If he has found you, children! But you can chase the hoodoo With the dance that you do, you do. Let me lead the way, There's a new belief today, But he'll never hound you; Stamp on the ground, you children, come on! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Don't you lose time! Don't you lose time! Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time Now for you and me! On the sands of time You are only a pebble, Don't forget that! But remember, trouble must be treated Just like a rebel; Then send him to the Devil! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Hallelujah! Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee! (scat) Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Don't you lose time! Don't you lose time! Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time Now for you and me! (scat) On the sands of time You are only a pebble, But remember, trouble must be treated Just like a rebel; Then send him to the Devil! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Hallelujah! Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee! Come along now! Clap your hands! Then slap your thigh! Come on, let's do that dance! (scat) Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Don't you lose time! Don't you lose time! Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time Now for you and me! On the sands if time, come on now! Mm-mmm! Then send him to the Devil! Clap your hands! Slap your thigh! Hallelujah! Ev'rybody come along and join the jubil-(scat)! (Contributed by Peter Akers - June 2009)
