Charleston! Charleston!
Made in Carolina!
Some dance, some prance,
I'll say, there's nothing betta' than the
Charleston! Charleston!
Boy, 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, that dance called
Charleston, made in South Caro-

('Bout eighty years old then, I'd say)
