Musical clip(s): The Jitter Bug

Lyrics: Who's that hiding in the tree top?
It's that rascal, The Jitterbug!
Should you catch him buzzing 'round you,
Keep away from, The Jitterbug!

Oh! the bats and the bees and the breeze in the trees have a terrible, horrible
buzz!,
But the bats and the bees and the breeze in the trees couldn't do what The
Jitterbug does!
So be careful of that rascal, Keep away from The Jitterbug!

The Jitterbug!

Oh! The Jitter! Oh The Bug!
Oh! The Jitterbug, Bug-a-bug, bug-a-bug, bug-a-boo.
In a twitter, in the throes, Oh the critter's
Got me dancing on a thousand toes,
Thar' she blows!

Oh! the bats and the bees and the breeze in the trees have a terrible, horrible
buzz!,
But the bats and the bees and the breeze in the trees couldn't do what The
Jitterbug does!
So be careful of that rascal, Keep away from The Jitterbug!

Random facts: This was part one of a two-part program Kurt put together for Stars on
Ice and Ice Wars. The running story through the programs is that Kurt
is a dad who stayed at home while his family went out to fix the leaky
pipes, but got distracted by his son's toybox. When the first program
(this one) closes, Mom has just called home and Dad has to put his
toys away. For both programs, Kurt wears a shirt that says "#1 Dad"
and utilizes a variety of props from the toybox as he skates. For the
2005 Canadian Stars on Ice tour, Kurt combined his two toybox programs
into one, skating only to "The Jitter Bug" and using some aspects of
choreography from "Supercali" (double axel over the toybox, skipping
rope, football toss) as well as aspects of the old "Jitter Bug"
choreography.
