Clap Yo' Hands

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the box set Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George and Ira Gershwin Song Book (1959).

Potter:
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
Halleluyah! Halleluyah
Ev'rybody 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
Halleluyah! Halleluyah
Everybody come along and join the Jubilee
