T'AIN'T NO SIN (TO DANCE AROUND IN YOUR BONES) (Walter Donaldson / Edgar Leslie) George Olsen & His Music (vocal: Dick Gardner) - 1929 Lee Morse & Her Blue Grass Boys - 1930 Billy Milton & The Four Bright Sparks - 1930 Hotel Pennsylvania Music (vocal: Sammy Fain) - 1930 The 3 Eddies (feat. in the film "Elstree Calling") - 1930 As recorded by LEE MORSE, 27th February 1930: Dancin' may do this and that And help you take off lots o' fat But I'm no friend of dancin' when it's hot So if you are a dancin' fool Who loves to dance, but can't keep cool Bear in mind the ideas that I've got When it gets to hot for comfort And you can't get ice cream cones T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones When the lazy syncopation Of the music softly moans T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones The polar bears aren't green up in Greenland They've got the right idea They think it's great to refrigerate While we all cremate down here Just be like those bamboo babies In the South Sea tropic zones T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones When you're callin' up your sweetie In those hothouse telephones T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones When you're on a crowdwd dance floor Near those red hot saxophones Ah, t'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones Take a look at the girls when they're dancin' Notice the way they're dressed They wear silken clothes without any hose And nobody knows the rest No more singin' in the bathtub With those television phones T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones (Instrumental Break) Now, we are gathered by the river Listen to your Deacon Jones T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones You must all go in that water Let me hear your sinful groans T'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones Do what I say right away, wicked sinners For this is your judgement day Come Andy Lee in the river with me Was your sins away Throw away your gin and razors Throw away your gamblin' bones For t'ain't no sin to take off your skin And dance around in your bones (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013)
