JOINT IS JUMPING, THE Thomas "Fats" Waller (m) James C Johnson (l) Andy Razaf (l) 1937 Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm recorded Oct 7th 1937 New York They have a new expression along old Harlem way That tells you when a party is ten times more than gay. To say that things are jumpin' leaves not a single doubt That everything is in full swing when you here someone shout; Here 'tis! The joint is jumpin', It's really jumpin'! Come in cats And check your hats, I mean this joint is jumpin'! The piano's thumpin', It's really jumpin'! This here spot Is more than hot, In fact the joint is jumpin'! Check your weapons at the door, Be sure to pay your quarter. Burn your leather on the floor, Grab anybody's daughter! The roof is rockin', The neighbours knockin', We're all bums When the wagon comes, I mean the joint is jumpin'! (Let it leap, yeah!) (Uh-huh!) (This is the joint boy, yes!) (Oh my, yes!) (Don't you hit that chick, that's my broad!) (Where d'you get that stuff at?) (Why, I'll knock you to your knees!) (What?) (Put that cat out o' here!) (what?) (Get rid of that pistol, get rid of that pistol, yeah, rid of it, yes!) (Ah, that's what I'm talkin' about, ha-ha!) (Oh man, it's nearly ready!) {No busy, not now! I can't come over there right now!) The joint is jumpin', It's really jumpin'! Every Mose Is on his toes, I mean this joint is jumpin'! Ah-ha, no time for talkin', This place is rockin, yes! Get your jugs And cut the rug, I said the joint is jumpin,! Listen! Get you pig feet, beer and gin, There's plenty in the kitchen! Who is that that just came in? Just look at the way he's twitchin'! (Ah mercy!) (You'll find out, I'm in power!) I got bail As we go to jail, I said the joint is jumpin'! (Don't give your right name, no no no!) (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2013)
