VERSE 1:
Ev-'ry-one was sing-ing, dan-cing, spring-ing,
At a wed-ding yes-ter-day,
Yid-dle, on his fid-dle played some ragt-ime,
And when Sa-die heard him play,
She jumped up and looked him in the eyes,
Yid-dle swelled his chest 'way out,
Ev-'ry one was ta-ken by sur-prise,
When they heard Sa-die shout:

CHORUS:
Yid-dle in the mid-dle of your fid-dle play some rag-time,
Get bus-y, I'm diz-zy, I'm feel-ing two years young,
Mine choc-late bab-y, if you'll may-be
play for Sa-die, some more rag-time,
Yid-dle don't you stop, if you do I'll drop,
For I just can't make my eyes shut up,
Yid-dle on your fid-dle, play some rag-time.

VERSE 2:
At the sup-per ta-ble Sa-die thought, -
Yid-dle must have flew the coop,
She looked all a-round, but could not find him,
'Til she heard him drink-ing soup,
Sa-die wait-ed 'til they served the fish,
Then she jumped up-on the floor,
Put a quar-ter right on Yid-dle's dish,
And yelled to him once more:

CHORUS:
Yid-dle in the mid-dle of your fid-dle play some rag-time,
Get bus-y, I'm diz-zy, I'm feel-ing two years young,
Mine choc-late bab-y, if you'll may-be
play for Sa-die, some more rag-time,
Yid-dle don't you stop, if you do I'll drop,
For I just can't make my eyes shut up,
Yid-dle on your fid-dle, play some rag-time.
