Copywright 1918. VERSE; " No use of talkin' no use of talkin' you'll start in dog-walkin' no matter where There's Jazz-co-pa-tion, Blues mod-u-la-tion Just like a Haitian you'll rip and tear Most everybody likes the blues. Here's why I'm ravin' Here's why I'm ravin' if it's blues you are cravin' just Come on down You'll hear `em playin' You'll hear `em playin' Soon you'll be sayin' "Hon jazz me `round" Because your feet they can't refuse Everybody grab somebody, and start jazzin' around - CHORUS: " Hon don't you hear that trombone moan ? just listen to that saxophone, Gee, hear that clarinet and flute, cornet a-jazzin with a mute, Makes me just throw myself away when I hear `em play That weepin' melancholy strain, say, but it's soothin' to the brain, Just wanna get right up and dance, don't care I'll take most any chance, No other blues I'd care to choose but Royal Garden Blues !"
