Ein Song aus dem Chicago der 1920er Jahre:


Come on, babe, why don't we paint the town,

And all that jazz!

I'm gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down

And all that jazz!

Start the car, I know a whoopee spot where the gin is cold but the piano's hot.

It's just a noisy hall where there's a nightly brawl

And all that jazz!

Slick your hair and wear your buckle shoes

And all that jazz! 

I hear that Father Dip is gonna blow the blues

And all that jazz!

Hold on, hon, we're gonna bunny hug,

I bought some aspirin down at United Drug

In case we shake apart and want a brand new start to do that jazz!

Oh, I'm gonna see my Sheba shimmy shake. (And all that jazz!)

Oh, she's gonna shimmy till her garters break. (And all that jazz!)

Show her where to park her girdle,

Oh, her mother's blood'd curdle if she'd her baby's queer for all that jazz!

Find a flask, we're playing fast and loose

And Oh, you're gonna see your Sheba all that jazz!

Right up here is where I shimmy shake,

And all that jazz!

Oh, store the juice,

And all that jazz!

I'm gonna shimmy till my garters break,

And all that jazz!

Come on, babe, we're gonna brush the sky.

I betcha lucky Lindy never

Show me where to park my girdle,

Oh, flew so high,

'Cause in the stratosphere how could he lend an ear to my mother's blood'd curdle she' hear her baby's queer for all that jazz!

No, I'm no one's wife, but oh, I love my life and all that jazz!
