  • Some people say she used to dance with the fish
    Others say she juggled fire in a dish
    She raised her hand and caused a 'lectrical storm
    Down by the Bayou Saint John

    She was a treacherous lady
    She never made me much harm
    One day she ducked past the station house
    Turned on the fire alarm

    Jump Sturdy Jump Sturdy was her name
    She came out the swamps like a crazy fool
    Jump Sturdy Jump Sturdy was her name
    She came out the swamps like a crazy fool

    Somehow she got tangled up with Queen Julia Jackson
    On Melpomene and Erato Street
    Queen Julia Jackson [trapped her?] Zozo Labrique
    Jump Sturdy died in defeat

    She was a treacherous lady
    She never met much harm
    One day she ducked past the station house
    Turned on the fire alarm

    Jump Sturdy Jump Sturdy was her name
    She came out the swamps like a crazy fool
    Jump Sturdy Jump Sturdy was her name
    She came out the swamps like a crazy fool
