Verse:
She just got here yes -ter -day, Things are hot here now they say,
There's a big change in town.
Gals are jeal -ous there's no doubt, Still the fel -lows rave a -bout
Sweet, Sweet Geor -gia Brown;
And ev -er since she came The col -ored folks all claim:
 
Chorus:
Say, No gal made has got a shade On Sweet Geor -gia Brown,
Two left feet but oh so neat has Sweet Georgia Brown;
They all sigh and wan -na die For Sweet Geor -giea Brown
I'll tell you just why you know I don't lie Not Much!
It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she cools 'em down
Fel -lers she can't get are Fel -ers she ain't met
Geor -gia claimed her Geor -gia named her Sweet Geor -gia Brown.
