Heebie Jeebies

by Ethel Waters

Ethel Waters (October 31, 1896 – September 1, 1977) was an American blues, jazz and gospel vocalist and actress. She frequently performed jazz, big band, and pop music, on the Broadway stage and in concerts, although she began her career in the 1920s singing blues.




Say, I've got the heebies, 
I mean the jeebies, 
Talking about 
The dance, the heebie jeebies, 
Do, because they're boys, 
Because it pleases me to be joy! 
Say, don't you know it? 
You don't know how, don't be blue, 
Someone will teach you

Come on, and do that dance, 
They call the heebie jeebies dance, 
Yes, ma'am, 
Papa's got the heebie jeebies dance! 

Say, come on, now, and do that dance, 
They call the heebie jeebies dance, 
Sweet mama! 
Papa's got to do the heebie jeebies dance! 

Whoa! Got the heebie jeebies! 
Whatcha doin' with the heebies? 
I just have to have the heebies
