[1st verse:]

Look at the crowd up the avenue

Oh, don't you know where they're going to?

They're on their merry way

To turn night into day

Dressed in their best, they're a happy mob

Soon, to a tune, they'll be on the job

If you care to join them

Just hurry along


[Refrain:]

Follow the crowd, follow the crowd

Come with me, you're going to be so proud

Don't stay behind, go where you'll find

Thousands of dreamy Tango dancers

Come, my honey, come!

The drummer's drum

Will make things hum!

The whole night long

We'll dance away the blues

Take an extra pair of shoes!

Come, come, come, come and follow the crowd


[2nd verse:]

You'll hear a jew'l of an orchestra!

Best of the rest in America!

Each syncopated beat

Just goes right to your feet

Heirs, millionaires, all the best of them

Glide side by side with the rest of them

They'll be glad to meet you

Just hurry along
