Stumbling (1924)
(wm) Edward Elzear “Zez” Confrey (I) Zez Confrey Orch. (P) Billy Murray
[Chorus] Stumbling all around, stumbling all around,
Stumbling all around. So funny!
Stumbling here and there, Stumbling ev’rywhere,
And I must declare, I stepped right on her toes.
And when she bumped my nose,
I fell and when I rose, I felt ashamed –- and told her
“That’s the latest step, that’s the latest step
That’s the latest step, my honey.
Notice all the pep, notice all the pep, notice all the pep!”
She said, “Stop mumbling, though you are stumbling,
I like it just a little bit, just a little bit, quite a little bit.”
