Sid Phillips & his Band
The Three Peters Sisters
Everybody step to the syncopated rhythm,
Let's be goin' with 'em when they begin.
You'll be sayin' 2Yes sir, the band is grand,
He's the best professor in all the land!"
Listen to the pep that emerges
>From the middle of the jazzy fiddle under his chin.
Oh, what music, the clarinetter couldn't be better!
Hear that strain, I don't know just what it is but it's great!
They simply ruin it,
Look at 'em doin' it!
Come come, don't hesitate!
Everybody step if you want to see a glutton
When it comes to struttin' over the ground;
Wait till you see
My little sweetie and me
Step step steppin' around!
