From Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds of Joy 1929-1931; The Chronogical Classics 655.
When the music's good and hot,
I start to sway a lot,
And all because I've got loose ankles.
No matter where I go
They never think I'm slow,
As long as I can show loose ankles.
Now, it used to be the passion
To hold hands oh-so-sweet,
But now to be in fashion
You must have dancing, prancing feet.
Those sweeties, one and all,
For me are bound to fall
'Cause I've got what they call loose ankles.
