'LONG ABOUT MIDNIGHT (Alexander Hill / Irving Mills) Cab Calloway Also recorded by : Mildred Bailey; Bix Beiderbecke; Terry Blaine; Willie Bryant; Benny Carter; The Mills Brothers; Don Neely's Royal Society Jazz Orch.; Ozzie Nelson; Louis Prima; Frankie Trumbauer; Teddy Wilson.

If you don't know just what to really do Just take a walk along the avenue; You'll hear the sounds come a-floatin' through Along about midnight.

Pianos tinkle, and the couples sway, Taking the pleasures they find, They don't care how they live by day, Why not leave trouble behind? They're not pretending like the hoy-falloy; They really mean it; it's the real McCoy. They turn an ounce of booze into a pound of joy, 'Long about midnight!
