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. Copyright Burris and Smith AN oct97
