The Jelly-Belly Blue Grass Band - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Let's go to the Hop!
Yelled the Jelly-Belly Blue Grass Band.

The dance floor was soon crowded with
Gyrating young dancers, dancing
Off beat, which was no treat to see.

We laughed, and laughed and laughed and
Sat
While the Off beat, gyrating dancers,
Kept right on having fun as the band
Played on!
