Quincy Lyr Req: Ragtime Millionaire (William Moore) (13) Lyr Add: RAGTIME MILLIONAIRE (William Moore) 22 Mar 01


Here you go Rag..I think!

RAGTIME MILLIONAIRE

[William Moore, 1928]

Now, you don't need no ticket, don't need no dough,
Just find yourself a corner and give'm a show.
Make it sound so good, the people in the town
Will leave their betsies a-wabbling down.
Tellin' all the little people, "Take your hat off for meó
I'm a ragtime millionaire!

Now, hear me syncopate it, shuffle it and pick it up slow,
Then bring back around and around I go,
Swingin' it easy, in two-four time,
I'm flush, I'm loaded and I ain't got a dime.
Now all you little people, take your hat off for meó
I'm a ragtime millionaire.

CHORUS

Oh, I'm a rag, yes, I'm a rag.
Oh, I'm a rag, I'm a ragtime millionaire.
Now all you little people, take your hat off for meó
I'm a ragtime millionaire!

BREAK

Now, see me playin' in the street, a feather in my hat,
Everybody's sayin' "Now, who is that?
I'm a-ringin' those strings for all to hearó
Yes, I'm that ragtime millionaire!
Now, all you little people, take your hat off for meó
I'm a ragtime millionaire.

CHORUS
BREAK
REPEAT FIRST VERSE
CHORUS
