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

First you put your two knees close up tight
Then you sway them to the left, then you sway them to the right
Step around the floor kinda nice and light
Then you twist around and twist 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 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

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

First you put your two knees close up tight
Then you sway them to the left, then you sway them to the right
Step around the floor kinda nice and light
Then you twist around and twist 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"
