I've got some good news, honey An invitation to the Darktown Ball It's a very swell affair All the highbrows will be there I'll wear my high silk hat and frock tail coat You wear your Paris gown and your new silk shawl There ain't no doubt about it, babe We'll be the best dressed in the hall I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey You better be ready about half past eight Now dearie, don't be late I wanna be there when the band starts playing Remember when we get there, honey The two-steps, we're gonna have 'em all Goin' to dance off both my shoes When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues" Tomorrow night, at the Darktown Strutters' Ball We'll meet our hightoned neighbours An exhibition of the "Baby Dolls" And each one will do their best Just to outclass all the rest There'll be dancers from ev'ry foreign land The classic buck and wing and the wooden clog We'll win that fifty dollar prize When we step out and "Walk The Dog" I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey You better be ready about half past eight Now dearie, don't be late I wanna be there when the band starts playing Remember when we get there, honey The two-steps, we're gonna have 'em all Goin' to dance off both my shoes When they play the "Jelly Roll Blues" Tomorrow night, at the Darktown Strutters' Ball (Contributed by Paul Molloy - September 2002) (Updated by Mel Priddle - October 2013)
