In a certain city, where 
The girls are cute and pretty, 
They have a raggy jazzy jazz time tune. 
When you hear that syncopated 
Jazz created melody 
You could dance all morning 
Night and noon, 
When the slide trombone 
And moaning saxophone begin to play. 
It will make you sad, 
'Twill make you glad 
Oh! Boy, 
What Joy, 
Burn my clothes for I'm in Heaven, 
Wish I had a million women, 
Soloman in all his glory, 
Could have told another story, 
Were he but living here today, 
With his thousand wives or more, 
A Jazz Band on some Egypt shore, 
He could dance the night and day away. 
I will tell you how they dance 
That tantalizing 12th. Street Rag. 
First you slide and then you glide, 
Then shimmie for a while; 
To the left then to the right 

"Lame Duck" "Get over Sal" 
Watch your step then Pirouette, 
Fox Trot, then squeeze your pal 
Over you comes stealing 
Such a funny feeling 
'Til you feel 
Your senses reeling, 
Tantalizing, hypnotizing, 
Mesmerizing strain, 
I can't get enough of it 
Please play it o'er again
I could dance for ever 
To this refrain, 
To that 12th. Street, 
Oh you 12th. Street Rag.
