BERTIE & COMPANY
Who's the man you've all been sitting there anticipating?
Whos' the man with his instrument ready, willing and waiting?
Who's the man for whom your breath has been eagerly baiting?
If I hadn't already confessed it
You'd no doubt already have guessed it
Banjo boy, banjo boy, play a number for me
Won't you play that melody?
When you start your plain' - Mama starts a-swayin'
She's right there with 'em - stompin' that rhythym
Banjo boy, banjo boy, play the razzamatazz
You're the sunny southland's king
You set Dixie hummin' it - when you started strummin' it
See those fingers goin'
When you start to syncopate
Songbirds seem to orchestrate
The Swanee stops it's flowin'
Just hear him play
Who can plunk your heartstrings full of joy
That's banjo boy
Hear him go
Don't you know
Love him so
Let him swing
And do his thing
He's the king
BERTIE & COMPANY
Banjo boy, banjo boy, you're the musical sun
In those southern sunny skies
Feet will start their fidgets - see those magic digits
Hands are a clappin' - fingers a snappin'
Banjo boy, banjo boy, play that favourite tune
That the old folks love to sing
Can't you hear the people cry
Wann see those fingers fly
Listen to him playin'
Can't you hear those children roar
Dixie's shoutin' out for more
Hear the steamboats blowin'
Eight to the bar
Who's that cotton pickin' hunk of joy?
That golden kid that fashion can't destroy?
Whose name they shout from Maine to Illinois?
That's banjo boy!
