Hoofin' Beat Fo' Dah Masses


---------- a presto -----------

Heel-toe steel bustin' up the floor
To an inner beat that cries for more.
In on the flim-flam, dancin' in a new jam
Flyin' off the screws, jammin' to the blues.

Coltrane runnin' red down the block,
Trippin' over sixteenths countin' down the clock.
Feets a-keep movin', heart strikes a groove in
Everybody's pelvis, cold rockin' like Elvis.

Shock, dismay! Hip, hip, hip, hooray!
Yeah, break a rule! Keep it flowin' real cool!
Should we call in for the policeman's order?
What do we do when we do down in the Quarter?

Black night flashin' in a moon haze glow
Puddles splashin' as we kick up the show.
A line of butt jigs getting' out the strut
Fly through the air without a vain care.

Troops a-hoofin' grow tighter every minute
Can't we just get you to join us in it?
Get off the ground and leap over the bound
Of beat 'n' phrase soarin', it never gets borin'.

Pack up, ya'll. Come move with us,
Just join in the reverie, you'll see
The light in the eyes of those who bring witness
We're nobody's fool and nobody's business.
