I need the lyrics to the song with the refrain line.

"It ain't no sin to jump out of your skin

and dance around in your bones."

Can anyone help with this tune?

Don

Tain't No Sin (To Dance Around in Your Bones)
Words by Edgar Leslie, Music by Walter Donaldson

Verse: Dancing may do this and that, and help you take off lots of fat.
But I'm no friend of dancing when it's hot.
So if you are a dancing fool, who loves to dance but can't keep cool,
Bear in mind the idea that I've got.

Chorus: When it gets too hot for comfort, and you can't get ice cream cones,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
When the lazy syncopation of the music softly moans,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
The polar bears aren't green up in Greenland, they've got the right idea.
They think it's great to refrigerate while we all cremate down here.
Just be like those Bamboo Babies, in the South Sea tropic zones,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.

Band takes two choruses

Verse 1: Dancing may do this and that, and help you take off excess fat.
But I'm no friend of dancing when it's hot. No I'm not.
So if you are a dancing fool, who loves to dance but can't keep cool,
Bear in mind this idea that I've got.

Chorus: When you're calling up your sweetie in those hot house telephones,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
When you're on a crowded dance floor, near those red hot saxophones,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
Just take a look at the girls while they're dancing. Notice the way that they're dressed.
They wear silken clothes without any hose and nobody knows the rest.
If a gal wears X-ray dresses, and shows everything she owns,
Tain't no sin to take off your skin… Band phrase Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.

I have a MIDI. Can someone work on it to extract the melody for inclusion here?

Lee Morse sings this additional chorus:

Now we are gathered by the river; listen to your Deacon Jones.
'Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
You must all go in that water; let me hear your sinful groans.
'Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
Do what I say right away, wicked sinners, for this is your judgment day.
Come, Mandy Lee, in the river with me; wash your sins away.
Throw away your gin and razors; throw away your gamblin' bones.
'Tain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.
