From the Show: Music Box Revue 1921 (S) Lyrics: "EVERYBODY STEP" Words & Music. Irving Berlin. Copywright 1921. VERSE; " Soon you'll hear a tune that's gonna lift you out of your seat. It could be sweeter but then the meter was written especially for your feet. Fly away up high upon a syn-co-pa-ted bal-loon A little ginger will never injure, hear them tuning up - they'll be playing soon. CHORUS: "Everybody step to the syn-co-pa-ted rhythm. Let's be going with `em when they begin. You'll be sayin' yes sir, the band is grand - He's the best professor in all the land. Listen to the pep that emerges from the middle of the jazzy fiddle under his chin. Oh, what music - the clarineter could not be better. Hear that strain, I don't know just what it is, but it's great. They simply ruin it - Look at `em doing it.Come, come don't hesitate - Everybody step if you want to see a glutton, when it comes to sruttin' over the ground - Wait'll you see my little sweetie and me step, step, stepping around."
