Subject: Lyr Add: BOOGIE WOOGIE BLUE PLATE (Louis Jordan)
Words and music by Joe Burhkin & Johnny De Vries.
As recorded by Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five, 1947.

There's a gal at the local beanery.
She's a pretty hunk o' scenery.
She can make a choc'late soda go s-s-s-s-s.
You oughta go around and dig it
When she's workin' at the spigot.
You can hear her calling orders like this:

Give me a ham white down and a burger rare,
Side o' slaw an' a seven-layer,
O.J. up, wreck two in a cup,
And a boogie-woogie blue plate.

Give me a crippled beef on a load o' hay,
Combo rye and a bottle of "A,"
Comin' through with a slab o' moo,
And a boogie-woogie blue plate.

Draw one; draw two.
Get that coffee perkin'.
Draw three; draw four.
Hold that mayo on the chopped egg workin'.

Want a tuna wheat with a side o' fries,
Eighty-six on the cherry pies,
Side o' greens on the franks and beans,
And a boogie-woogie blue plate.
