Muskrat Ramble    (1926)

Shufflin', shufflin', shufflin' down
Ramblin', scramblin', headin' for town
Hustlin', bustlin', buzzin' around
Happily awaitin' at the station

Look at that train number 709
It's a huffin' and a puffin' and comin' on time
Who do you think's about to arrive?
The band they call, the Dixieland Five

Da da da da dum
Da da da da dum
Da da da da
Da da da da

They're gonna play
That muskrat ramble tune
You've never heard it played
Join in the big parade

Altogether now one and two
Join that happy throng
Feel the beat of that ramblin'
Scramblin' muskrat song
Come on, and ramble along

Look at them a shufflin', shufflin' down
Ramblin', scramblin', headin' for town
Hustlin', bustlin', buzzin' around
Happily awaitin' at the station

See that number 709
Huffin' and puffin', on time
Who do you think's about to arrive?
The band they call the Dixieland Five

Da da da da dum
Da da da da dum
Da da da da
Da da da da

They're gonna play
That muskrat ramble tune
You've never heard it played
Join in the big parade

Altogether now one and two
Join that happy throng
Feel the beat of that ramblin'
Scramblin' muskrat song
Come on and ramble along
Pa ra ra rap
