Lyrics

I feel like the Emperor Nero when Rome was a very hot town
Father Knickerbocker, forgive me, I play while your city burns down
Through all its night life I fiddle away
It's not the right life, but think of the pay
Someday I will bid it goodbye, I'll put my fiddle away and I'll say

Crazy rhythm here's the doorway
I'll go my way, you'll go your way
Crazy rhythm from now on we're through
Here is where we have a showdown
I'm too high-hat, you're too low-down
Crazy rhythm here's goodbye to you

They say that when a high-brow meets a low-brow walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain't it a shame, and you're to blame
What's the use of Prohibition?
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm I've gone crazy, too

Ev'ry Greek, each Turk and each Latin, the Russians and Prussians as well
When they seek the lure of Manhattan, are sure to come under your spell
Their native folksongs they soon throw away
Those Harlem smoke songs, they soon learn to play
Can't you fall for Carnegie Hall, oh Danny, call it a day and we'll say

Crazy rhythm here's the doorway
I'll go my way, you'll go your way
Crazy rhythm from now on we're through
Here is where we have a showdown
I'm too high-hat, you're too low-down
Crazy rhythm here's goodbye to you

They say that when a high-brow meets a low-brow walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain't it a shame, and you're to blame
What's the use of Prohibition?
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm I've gone crazy, too
