The Sneak Novelty Fox Trot Song by Nacio Herb Brown

The Sneak Novelty Fox Trot Song

The Sneak Novelty Fox Trot Song

Year 1922

Song by Nacio Herb Brown

Sherman, Clay & Co.
San Francisco

  Have you heard about the Sneak,
Ha! Ha! the Sneak, Ha! Ha! Ha!

In your window he will peak,
Ha! Ha! will peek, Ha! Ha! Ha!

When the wind begins to howl,
Ha! Ha! Ha! howl, Ha! Ha! Ha!

In your bedroom he will prowl, then.

He'll rise before your eyes
And laugh in glee
And dance so merrily

He's got your number,
you'll never slumber,
For he will gloat,
and try to get your goat

Like a white ghost,
He's in the air,
when you grab him,
he isn't there

He'll make you shake
keep you wide awake,
and OH! how you shiver.

Sandman comes stealin' 'round
but at a glance, he hasn't got a chance
"There is no doubt" says Mister Gout,
"you'll pay for stepping out"

Mince pies, rare bits, everything you ate
Keeps a jumping, thumping, yelling "This is great"
While moon gleams
and the owl screams "Sweet Dreams"

Just as soon as break of day,
Ha! Ha! the day, Ha! Ha! Ha!

Then the Sneak he sneaks away,
Ha! Ha! away, Ha! Ha! Ha!

While you roll and toss can't sleep,
Ha! Ha! can't sleep, Ha! Ha! Ha!

Goes the Sneak!
