The Shorty George
Just heard of the Shorty George Got word of the Shorty George Seems that it's a kind of jig Named for someone about so big He rambles around the town Preambles around the town Then stops on a crowded street 'n beats his feet till his feet is beat Watch him go! - and he can - Like a real- nach'-l man High Stepper is Shorty George Black pepper is Shorty George He dances to pay the rent And to see that you're solid sent Mister can you spare a penny? Lady can you spare a dime? He makes, I don't know how many 'Cause he's dancin' all the time. Popa's dressed up mighty sporty Momma's snooz-in' in the shade But while mommas's catchin' "forty" Shorty sees the rent is paid Get hip to the Shorty George Hop, skip to the "Shorty George" Directions are short and sweet Beat your feet till your feet is beat So catch-on to "Shorty George" And latch onto "Shorty George" Good people I'm tellin' you "Shorty George" is the dance to do.
