Everybody's Doin' It Now  (1911) 
by Irving Berlin
Cover page to the sheet music.

[1st verse:]
Honey honey can't you hear?
Funny funny music dear
Ain't the funny strain
Goin' in your brain?
Like a bottle of wine, fine...

Hon', hon', hon', hon'
Take a chance
One, one, one one,
Little dance

Can't you see them all
Swaying up the hall?
Let's be gettin' in line.

[Refrain:]
Everybody's doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it
Everybody's doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it

See that ragtime couple over there
Watch them throw their shoulders in the air
Snap their fingers
Honey I declare it's a bear
It's a bear, it's a bear
There!

Everybody's doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it
Everybody's doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it

Ain't that music touching your heart?
Hear that trombone bust in a part?
Come, come, come, come let us start
Everybody's doin' it now

[2nd verse:]
Baby baby get a stool
Maybe maybe I'm a fool
Honey don't you smile
Let us rest a while
I'm so weak in the chest, best...

Go, go, go, go
Get a chair
No, no, no, no
Leave it there

Honey, if the mob
Are still on the job
I'm as strong as the rest
