Fats Waller: The Joint is Jumpin' - disparages the freeloader and argues against using or threatening violence to undermine the market.

Check your weapon at the door
Be sure to pay your quarter
Burn your leather on the floor
Grab anybody's daughter.

We're all bums when the wagon comes!
Don't give your right name, oh no...

"Ira Hayes" was written by Peter LaFarge, btw.
