Won't you strut Miss Lizzie,
I wanna see you walk;
Oh, the folks all see the way you syncopate,
Hear the whole town talk!
When you move so preety,
It's a pity
The other girlies frown,
But the men you meet
Like the way you shake your feet;
Oh, you knock'em dizzy,
Strut Miss Lizzie Brown!
Go down the street, by the school,
Pack your feet you struttin' fool!
Strut your stuff by the kirk,
Trot your tootsies by the church!
Through the alley, dodge the cans,
Shake Miss Ellie's pots and pans.
Cool your dog, we're comin' through,
Except for Lennox Avenue!
