If you'd like to be a jitter bug,
Put whiskey, wine and gin within,
Grab a cup and start to toss,
Don't you worry, you just mug,

He's been a bug since the day he was born,
I swear, he'll drink it 'til the day he die!
Oh, butchie-wutchie, time will tell,
You'll always be a jitter bug!
These four boys playing saxophone,
Central, give me Harlem 4-9-4,
They drink sauce from morn to night
Don't you worry, they just mug,

Drinks more sauce than the other bugs can,
That's why jitter sauce was born,
He just can't leave that sauce alone,
You'll always be a jitter bug!
There's Rip Van with his eyes a-twinkle,
Like Rip, he'd sleep for twenty years
Rip drinks his sauce, gets on the stand,
Don't awaken him, just let him mug;
