Don't you grieve, little Eve, The hounds, I believe Have been killed, Ain't ya thrilled? Jump for joy! Have you seen pastures groovy? I'm tellin' you "Green Pastures" Was just a technicolor movie! When you get up to heaven And you meet Old Saint Pete, Tell that boy, "Jump for joy!". Step right in, Give old Pete skin, Jump for joy! Step right in, Give old Pete skin, Jump for joy! That's all that will be necessary. As recorded by Kay Starr with Hal Mooney & his Orchestra July 27th 1955 Los Angeles new lyrics by ? When the moon's bright and yeller And that feller winks his eye, That's when I jump for joy! When he's gone skies are black, But the moment he comes back, That's a gay Christmas day, I'll jump for joy! When those blue skies are stormy, Hey mister, I've got a pair of arms to warm me! Hear me shout like a baby With a bright shiny toy, That's my boy, jump for joy, Gonna love my lover boy and jump for joy! Well I'm really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump, jump jump, jump jump for joy! Well I'm a-really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump, jump jump, jump jump for joy! Baah-aah-aah-aah, Aah-aah-aah. Well I'm really gonna jump for joy, Yes I'm really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump, jump jump, jump jump for joy! When the moon's bright and yeller And that feller winks his eye, That's when I jump for joy! When he's gone skies are black, But the moment he comes back, There's a gay Christmas day, I'll jump for joy! When those blue skies are stormy, Hey there mister, I've got a pair of arms to warm me! Hear me shout like a baby With a bright shiny toy, That's my boy, jump for joy, Gonna love my lover boy and jump for joy! But I'm a-really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump for joy, Well I'm really gonna jump, jump jump, jump jump, jump jump, jump jump, jump jump...
