Clap Yo' Hands



Clap Yo' Hands
music by George Gershwin (left)
lyric by Ira Gershwin (right)


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!
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!

With a tech-savvy generation in college these days, Paradise Valley Community College is betting mp3 players and an online blog are the best way to reach students.
Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to visit you again soon!

I have a home business site. It pretty much covers home business related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
