 “ROYAL GARDEN BLUES”   Words & Music by Spencer & Clarence Williams. Copywright 1918.

VERSE; “ No use of talkin’ no use of talkin’ you’ll start in dog-walkin’ no matter where

There’s Jazz-co-pa-tion, Blues mod-u-la-tion

Just like a Haitian you’ll rip and tear

Most everybody likes the blues.

Here’s why I’m ravin’ Here’s why I’m ravin’ if it’s blues you are cravin’ just

Come on down You’ll hear ‘em playin’ You’ll hear ‘em playin’

Soon you’ll be sayin’ “Hon jazz me ‘round” Because your feet they can’t refuse

Everybody grab somebody, and start jazzin’ around –

CHORUS: “ Hon don’t you hear that trombone moan ? just listen to that saxophone,

Gee, hear that clarinet and flute, cornet a-jazzin with a mute,

Makes me just throw myself away when I hear ‘em play

That weepin’ melancholy strain, say, but it’s soothin’ to the brain,

Just wanna get right up and dance, don’t care I’ll take most any chance,

No other blues I’d care to choose but Royal Garden Blues !”
