[They stand up and move to the main floor...]

MAGGIE.
Come all you chil'en and
Gather around,
Gather around you chil'en!
And we will lose
that evil spirit called
Voodoo.
Bud-ela baa-bee-bo-bee!

Nothing but trouble
If he found you
If he has found you chil'en!
But you can chase
That hoodoo
With the dance that
You do.
Let us lead the way

He'll never hound you
Step on the ground
You chil'en!

Clap yo hands
Slap yo thighs
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Everybody come along
And join the
Jubilee!

Clap yo hands
Slap yo thighs
Don't you lose time
Don't you lose time
Come along
And shake your shoes.
Time now for
You and me.

On the sands of time
You're only a pebble.
But then the trouble
Must be treated
Just like a rebel:
Send it to the devil!

Clap yo hands
Slap yo thighs
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Everybody come along
And join the
Jubilee!

BOTH.
So ring-a them bells
Ring-a them bells out
Ring-a them ring-a them
Ring-a them ring-a them
Be-lls!

MAGGIE.
Well, Mister Tallahassee, how we doin'?

di*k..
Why, we is the two most friendly vibrations you ever seen.

MAGGIE.
Hey diddle-diddle

The dish ran away with the spoon.
Missus Tallahassee, do you know why a chicken crosses the road?

MAGGIE.
No, why does a chicken cross the road?

Why, to get to the second floor, woman.

MAGGIE.
Oh man, you is a genius.

BOTH.
Roses are red
The violets are blue
The dresses is got to be sewed, so
Let's get this show on the road!

MAGGIE.
