Rockin' Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu

Lyrics: John Vincent/Huey 'Piano' Smith
Music: Vincent/Smith

This was played half a dozen times in 1972. Garcia seems to have mixed around the verses on different occasions - this is the version on "Steppin' Out ...":

I want to jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I want to holler but the joint's too small
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I want to kiss, baby, that ain't all
I want to kiss her but the gal's too small
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I want to holler, baby, don't you know
I would be running but my feet's too slow
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I want to scream but that ain't all
My baby loves me, Lord, she's carrying on
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I want to jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I want to holler but the joint's too small
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I want to scream, baby, that ain't all
I want to kiss her but the girl's too tall
Young man rhythm got a hold on me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu
