TENNESSEE ZIP
(Kenneth Parchman)
KENNY PARCHMAN (SUN, rec. 1956)

Well, down around the corner
'bout Fourty-Nine Square
There lives a little chick
With a long curly hair
She's got big blue eyes and ruby red lips
She's a jitterbuggin' baby with a Tennessee zip

She's a jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
She's my jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)

Well, she can rock, she can roll
She can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin' baby with a Tennessee zip
Yeah, that jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long

Some boys got a girl that's nice and fair
Some's got a girl with pretty curly hair
Some's got a gal with a bit of hep
But my gal's got that Tennessee zip

She's my jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
Well, she's my jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)

Well, she can rock, she can roll
She can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin' baby with a Tennessee zip
Hey, that jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Yeah, dance!)

Well, I met you little girl, not so long ago
Now here's a little song that I want you to know
I know there's lots of girls that I've never met
But this little chick I'll never forget

She's my jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
She's my jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)

Well, she can rock, she can roll
She can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin' baby with a Tennessee zip
Jitterbuggin' baby
She can dance the whole night long
