"Riverboat Shuffle [Rehearsal]" as written by Hoagy Carmichael, Irving N Mills, Mitchell...
Good people, you're invited tonight
To the riverboat shuffle
Good people, we got rhythm tonight
At the riverboat shuffle
They tell me that slide-pipe tooter is grand
Best in Louisiana
So bring your freighter, come and alligator that band
Mister Hawkins on the tenor
Good people, you'll hear Millenberg Joys
In a special orchestration
Even mama Dinah will be there to strut for the boys
In a room full of noise
She'll teach you to shuffle it right
So, bring your baby
I'll be seeing you at the riverboat shuffle tonight

Good people, you're invited tonight
To the riverboat shuffle
Good people, we got rhythm tonight
At the riverboat shuffle
They tell me that slide-pipe tooter is grand
Best in Louisiana
Bring your freighter, come and alligator that band
Mister Jordan on the alto
Good people, we got Millenberg Joys
In a special orchestration
Even mama Dinah will be there to strut for the boys
In a room full of noise
She'll teach you to shuffle it right
So, bring your baby
I'll be seeing you at the riverboat shuffle, the riverboat shuffle tonight
