Song lyrics to I Can’t Dance (I Got Ants in My Pants) (1934) music by Clarence Williams, lyrics by Charles Gaines, performed in Meet the People

Now, let’s go walking,
Let’s go walking,
Out the park,
Out the park,

Meet the People(1944) starring Lucille Ball, Dick Powell

At its’ heart, Meet the People is a musical romantic comedy, where shipyard worker William ‘Swanee’ Swanson (played by Dick Powell) has written a patriotic play about the American worker during World War II, and actress Julie Hampton (played by Lucille Ball) is hired to act in the play, but when Swanson has “creative differences” with the producer, he wants the actual shipyard workers to star in the play.
