Ballin' the Jack

Ballin' the Jack
(Words by Jim Burris; Music by Chris Smith)

Folks in Georgia's 'bout to go insane
Since that new dance down in Georgia came
I'm the only person who's to blame
I'm the party introduced it there

So, give me credit to know a thing or two
Give me credit for springing something new
I will show this little dance to you
When I do you'll say that it's a bear.

cho: First you put your two knees close up tight
     Then you sway 'em to the left
     Then you sway 'em to the right
     Step around the floor kind of nice and light
     Then you twis(t) around and twis(t) around with all your might
     Stretch your lovin' arms straight out in space
     Then you do the eagle rock with style and grace
     Swing your foot way 'round then bring it back
     Now that's what I call Ballin' The Jack.

It's being done in all the cabarets
All society now has got the craze
It's the best dance done in modern days
That is why I rave about it so

Play some good "rag" that will make you prance
Old folks, young folks all try to do the dance
Join right in now while you got the chance
Once again the steps to you I'll show.

Featured in the movie: THAT'S MY BOY! with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
