I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey
You better be ready about half past eight
Now Dearie, don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playing
Remember when we get there honey
Two steps I'm gonna have them all,
Goin' to dance out both my shoes,
When they play the jelly roll blues
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutter's Ball.

[The lyrics I remember are obviously a variant.  BTW, the date has to be
post 1953--Monte wasn't recording for RCA before then as the result of
an auto accident.]
