This song is by McKinney's Cotton Pickers and appears on the compilation album McKinney's Cotton Pickers 1929-1930 (1992).

Time to start dancing zonky
Start cutting loose, get honky-tonky
It's a good excuse, let your feelings run wild

Shake your feet a-plenty, don't be haughty
Work a double twenty, that means forty
Make a noisy entry, act just like a big child

I got such, well, you know
What I want to say
Hot much, that tempo
Sure is hot that way

I'd bet a dime, guess a donut
Other dances they may come and go, but
When you learn the zonky
You will want it to stay
