Come on, you children, gather around,
Gather around, you children.
And we will lose that evil spirit
Called the voodoo.
Nothin' but trouble, if he has found

If he has found you, children,
But you can chase the hoodoo
With the dance that you do.
Let me lead the way.
Jubilee today!
He'll never hound you,
Stamp on the ground, you children!
Come on!

Clap-a yo' hand! Slap-a yo' thigh!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Everybody come along and join the Jubilee!
Clap-a yo' hand! Slap-a yo' thigh!
Don t you lose time! Don't you lose time!
Come along-it's shake yo' shoes time
Now for you and me!
On the sands of time
You are only a pebble,
Remember, trouble must be treated
Just like a rebel,
Send him to the Debble!
Clap-a yo' hand! Slap-a yo' thigh!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Everybody come along and join the Jubilee!
