16-beat intro. Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Part 1:
There's a new sen -sa -tion that is sweep -ing the land Mis -ter Joe Spa -ghet -ti and his rag -a -time band
Ev -'ry -bo -dy loves him and they think that he's grand Be -bop? Yop! yop!
When he plays the clar -in -et, he's mad as a loon On -ly knows one mel -o -dy but oh! what a tune
First you go zig -ge -ty then you go zag That's the Spa -ghet -ti Rag.
Part 2:
When Joe starts off with his beat You can't help tap -pin' your feet
It gets ya Up -sets ya Al -tho' it's corn -a -dee -corn
Just hear that mop -pi -ty mop No -bod -y wants him to stop
That la -zy That cra -zy horn
Part 3:
All at once his strange so -na -ta floats thru the air
The rhy -thm's rag -ged but oh! bro -ther, it's rare His kind -a jazz is com -in back, back, back, back,
Then you'll hear a queer ca -den -za ri -din the breeze
And when it hits you it will tic -kle your knees And you'll be jump -ing like a jack.
Part 4:
(Repeat of Part 1)
