James Burris, 1913

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.
Chorus:
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' around
And twis' 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".

2. It's being done at 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,
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.
Chorus:
