The latest crave, the country's rave is jive, jive, jive,
This modern treat makes life complete: jive, jive, jive!

All the jive is gone!
All the jive is gone!
I'm sorry, gate, but you got here late,
All the jive is gone!

All the jive is gone!
All the jive is gone!
So come on in and drink some gin,
All the jive is gone!

All the jive is gone!
All the jive is gone!
Things won't be quiet, don't brag tonight;
All the jive is gone!

All the jive is gone!
All the jive is gone!
What an awful fix, can't get my kicks,
'Cause all the jive is gone!

The jive's gone, the jive's gone;
The jive's gone, the jive's gone;
Rarin' to go to Mexico,
All the jive is gone.
