James P Johnson The Charleston 1925 piano roll

Lyrics by Cecil Mack according to Wikipedia

Caroline, Caroline, At last they've got you on the map.
With a new tune, a funny blue tune, with a peculiar snap!
You many not be able to buck and wing, fox-trot, two-step, or even swing,
If you ain't got religion in your feet, you can do this prance and do it neat.
Charleston! Charleston! Made in Carolina.
Some dance, some prance, I'll say, there's nothing finer
Than the Charleston, Charleston. Lord, how you can shuffle.
Ev'ry step you do leads to something new, man, I'm telling you it's a lapazoo.
Buck dance, wing dance, will be a back number,
But the Charleston, the new Charleston, that dance is surely a comer.
Sometime you'll dance it one time, the dance called the Charleston,
Made in South Caroline.
Charleston! Charleston! Made in Carolina.
Some dance, some prance, I'll say, there's nothing finer
Than the Charleston, Charleston. Lord, how you can shuffle.
Ev'ry step you do leads to something new, man, I'm telling you it's a lapazoo.
Buck dance, wing dance, will be a back number,
But the Charleston, the new Charleston, that dance is surely a comer.
Sometime you'll dance it one time, the dance called the Charleston,
Made in South Caroline!
