Dix-a-Billy
LaVern Baker Lyrics


San Francisco To Chicago
Right through Philly
New York's doing Dix-A-Billy

Dressed in dirty white bucks
And blue jeans, New Orleans
The kids are doing a dance they call a Dix-A-Billy

They don't need a real dance floor
They just scatter some straw
And then they get a trombone to wail a Dix-A-Billy

See them groovin
Really movin'
Man alive-in'
Hands a'jivin Dix-A-Billy

Take a honky-tonk piano
Played in a southern manner
Make it rock with a northern beat a Dix-A-Billy

Watch them struttin' and kickin'
It beats doin' the chicken
No one leaves til the rooster crows a Dix-A-Billy

Hear that singin'
Feel that rhythm
Love that music
They're all doing Dix-A-Billy

Dix-A-Billy
Dix-A-Billy
Oh
Dix-A-Billy
Dix-A-Billy
