Jim Dixon Lyr Req: songs by Monette Moore (13) Lyr Add: TAKE IT EASY (Monette Moore) 11 Jun 20

You can hear this either on either Spotify or YouTube.

(W. Benton Overstreet; Joe Davis)
As recorded by Monette Moore on Columbia 14105D, 1924.

Jimmy was a dancin' master of great renown.
Say but jimmy was the bestest there was in town.
When he went to teach a girlie how to swing and sway,
He would take her by the hand and this is what he'd say:

Now take it easy when you do this dance.
Take it easy when you do this prance.
You break a leg and buzz around.
Now pick 'em up and lay 'em down.
Don't you 'low old sister Kate a chance
With your Jimmy.

Like miss Lizzy, go and strut your stuff
Till you're dizzy, but don't get too rough.
When you Charleston, syncopate it,
But don't you exaggerate it.
Take it easy when you do this dance.
