I'm gon -na pick you up in my old Mod -el "T",
Put on your new glad rags and be wait -in' for me,
Be rea -dy at eight we must -n't be late,
We're go -ing to a ball, I mean that Ban -Jo Pick -er's Ball.
There'll be a band strum -min' rag -time all night,
The best band in the land hon -ey babe, what a sight;
They'll make those Ban -jo's talk when they start to get hot,
We'll do that old cake -walk when they play the tur -key trot.
HEY; what a cel -e -bra -tion, There'll be lots of syn -co -pa -tion
At the Ban -Jo Pick -er's Ball.
