(Howard Johnson /Joe Davis)
Fats Waller & His Rhythm (vocal: Fats Waller) - 1938
If your feet feel like a treat
Meet sweet Florida Flo
Swing an' shag are in the bag
With sweet Florida Flo
She lives in a southern town
She lives there the year around
Boy, does she know all the angles, yeah!
How does she get those big Bojangles, yeah!
Colour light, but not too white
Just betwixt and between
Eyes a-glancin', she's romancin'
The dancin'est queen
Down the trail called Tam-i-aye
Just like goin' home t'your big fat Mammy
You should see those young men scrammy
For Florida Flo
Down the trail called Tammy-Yammy
Just like going' home to Mammy
Aah! You should see them young men scrammy
For Florida Flo, yeah!
My Florida Flo, yeahhh!
