Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

This way, join the party
I say, meet McCarty
Hey, hey, Charlie, take a bow

Ginger ale and white rock for his table
Grab a chair, move over there
And let him sit right next to Mabel

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

This way, meet The Dollies
I say, Zeigfield Follies
Hey, Charlie, take a bow

See the smile on all those hungry faces
They can tell that he's a buyer
From those wide and open spaces

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

Clap hands, here comes Charlie now
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

See the smile on all those hungry faces
They can tell that he's a buyer
From those wide and open spaces
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie, oh boy, yeah

Ginger ale and white rock for his table
Grab a chair, move over there
And let him wait
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

This way, join the party
I say, meet McCarty
Hey, hey, Charlie, take a bow

See the smile on all those hungry faces
They can tell that he's a buyer
From those wide and open spaces

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

He's a big man with the ladies
And sail her with his doubt
When he starts to wail and holler, "Go man go"

Oh boy, there was Charlie
What joy, swingin' Charlie
Clap hands, there goes Charlie now
