Lyrics DOWN IN LOUISIANA
IN THAT SUNNY CLIME,
THEY PLAY A CLASS OF MUSIC
THAT IS SUPER FINE,
AND IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE
IF IT'S RAIN OR SHINE,
YOU CAN HEAR
THAT JAZZ BAND MUSIC
PLAYING ALL THE TIME.
SOUNDS SO PECULIAR
'CAUSE THE MUSIC'S QUEER.
HOW ITS SWEET VIBRATION
SEEMS TO FILL THE AIR.
THEN TO YOU
THE WHOLE WORLD
SEEMS TO BE IN RHYME,
YOU WANT NOTHING ELSE
BUT JAZZ BAND MUSIC
ALL THE TIME.

EV'RY ONE THAT'S NIGH
NEVER SEEMS TO SIGH,
HEAR THEM LOUDLY CRY;
OH!

JAZZMAN,
DON'T STOP THAT MUSIC,
IT'S JAZZMAN (JAZZMAN),
YOU KNOW
I WANT TO HEAR IT
BOTH DAY AND NIGHT,
AND IF YOU
DON'T BLOW IT HOT
THEN I DON'T
FEEL RIGHT.
NOW IF IT'S RAGTIME,
PLEASE SIR
WILL YOU PLAY IT
IN JAZZTIME (JAZZTIME).
DON'T WANT IT FAST,
DON'T WANT IT SLOW,
TAKE YOUR TIME,
DON'T RUSH IT,
PLAY IT SWEET A
ND LOW.
I'VE GOT THOSE
DOGGONE,
REAL GONE,
JAZZBAND,
JAZZ ME,
BLUES.
