And all that jazz

Right up here

And all that jazz

Come on, babe,

'Cause in the stratosphere,

how could he lend an ear

To all

That

Jazz?

Oh, you're gonna see

your sheba shimmy-shake

And all that jazz

Oh, she's gonna shimmy

till her garters break

And all that jazz

Show her

Oh, her mother's blood

lf she'd hear

her baby's queer

For all

That

Jazz

Gosh , if I ever found Amos

sIipping it to somebody eIse. . .

I'd throw him a great big

going-away party.

It's getting Iate.

I have been thinking a Iot

about my act.

Whenever I get a good idea

I write it in my diary.

It occurred to me the other day

that aII the reaIIy, reaIIy

knockout acts have

something a IittIe different

going on .

Like a signature bit.

And I thought that my thing
