Living A Ragtime Life (Gene Jefferson / Robt. S. Roberts)

Well, I got more trouble than I can stand
Ever since ragtime has struck the land
Never saw the like in all of my days
Everybody’s got that rag-time craze

I held out as long as I could
Then it got me and it got me good
At first I didn’t want ragged time
But now I’m right in line

I got a rag-time dog and a ragtime cat
A rag-time piano in my rag-time flat
I got rag-time clothes, from hat to shoes
I read a paper called the “Rag-time News”

I got ragtime habits and I talk that way
I dream in rag-time and I rag all day
Got rag-time trouble with my rag-time wife
I’m certainly livin’ a rag-time life

I held out as long as I could
Then it got me and it got me good
At first I didn’t want ragged time
But now I’m right in line

I got a rag-time dog
And a ragtime cat
I read my “Rag-time News”
in my rag-time flat

I got ragtime habits and I talk that way
I dream in rag-time and I rag all day
I got rag-time troubles with my rag-time wife
I’m certainly livin’ a rag-time life
I’m certainly livin’ a rag-time life
