Verse:
'Ten - tion folks, speak of jokes,  This is one on me,
Took my gal,  To a dance,  At the Ar - mor - y.
Mu - sic played, danc - ers swayed,  Then we joined the crowd;
I can't dance, took a chance,  And right then we start - ed:
 
Chorus:
Stum - bling all a - round,  Stum - bling all a - round,  Stum - bling all a - round so fun - ny,
Stum - bling here and there,  Stum - bling ev - 'ry where and I must de - clare,
I stepped right on her toes,  And when she bumped my nose,
I fell and when I rose,  I felt a - shamed,  And told her,
That's the lat - est step, That's the lat - est step, That's the lat - est step,  My hon - ey,
No - tice all the pep,  No - tice all the pep,  No - tice all the pep.
She said,  "Stop mum - bling,  Tho you are stum - bling,
I like it just a lit - tle bit,  just a lit - tle bit,  quite a lit - tle bit."
