[Verse 1]
Won’t you take a spin with me some night to shadow land
They want to see you there,
You’re more than welcome there;
In Snooky Hollow,
Harmonizing with that forty pieces,
In the band
They’ll all be over there
In Snooky Hollow town.

[Chorus]
For its Howdy brother and
Howdy sister (so) glad to meet you (why) look who’s here
That’s the way they greet you from far and near,
If you’re worth hald a billion or a bent thin dime
With your best pal with you (your) sweetest little sweetheart the big band jazzing your fav’rite tune
Its done and over but all too soon
You’ll say you had a gorgeous time
Lovely ladies grown up handsome babies,
Dress’d in their latest gayest gowns,
Harmonizing with that forty pieces in the band
They’ll all be over there,
In Snooky Hollow town

[Verse 2]
When the sun goes down they start to clown in shadow land
Bohemia with its glare,
Just one big night for fair,
In Snooky Hollow,
Harmonizing with that forty pieces,
In the band
They’ll all be over there
In Snooky Hollow town.

[Chorus]
