Hey-eee, come on you women
Let's a do the the jitterbug swing
Hey-eee, come on you women
Let's a do the the jitterbug swing
When ya do the jitterbug swing
Then you know you will be doin' the thang

(guitar & washboard)

Hey-eee, I can't stand this long
I'm tellin' you women
I can't stand this long
Hey-eee, ev'rytime I aks you
You won't even let me follow you home
You must have some other
Layin' in your arms

(guitar & washboard)

Hey-eee, you women workin' on my nerves
Hey-eee, you women workin' on my nerves
Hey-eee, you gon' drive me in my blood

(guitar & washboard)

Hey-eee, please ma'm don't say, 'Uh-uh'

(guitar & washboard to end).
