Ragtime Song Summary of The Easy Winners

This ragtime song was composed and published in 1901 by the African-American pianist, composer, and music educator Scott Joplin (1868-1917) from Sedalia, Missouri. A simplified version was first published by the Shattinger Music Company. Later on, John Stillwell Stark published Joplin’s original composition “as written.”

The title of this rag refers to sporting athletes who have little difficulty at winning sporting events. The pictures on the sheet music cover depict scenes of baseball, football, horse racing and sailing.

This rag was one of many popular Ragtime compositions that helped make Scott Joplin “The King of Ragtime.” Edward Berlin, a musicologist and Joplin biographer, said “Easy Winners must be judged one of Joplin’s great works. It has a classical balance between its strains, its moods, and in its progression from the smooth calm of strain A to the sporadic agitation of strain D.”

Lyrics by Joe Snyder

Verse 1A

Hark to the music, it’s the Pine Apple Rag,
That tune is certainly divine.
Lordy, goodness how entrancing, Who on earth can keep from dancing?
Right here is where we shine.
Oh my, but isn’t that a wonderful tune!
It’s by a gen’man friend of mine.
Goodness me it’s all the candy, Lord I hope they play that dandy
Tune all the time.

Verse 1B

Pineapple

Tease up to me, ease up to me, lovey,
Squeeze up to me, freeze up to me, dovey,
My goodness man, you never can lose me,
Not when I hear that strain, Lordy don’t believe it;
Keep steppin’ Bill, don’t stop until I do.
Stick to it, Kid, you always did try to
Set me a reeling, Lord what a feeling,
Oh, that Pine Apple Rag.

Verse 1C

Hear me sigh, hear me cry, for that Pine Apple Rag.
What a dream, it sure does seem like Heaven when we drag.
Soulful eyes, hypnotize, you are wonderful wise,
You idolize me, so please surprise me by doing that Pine Apple rag.

Verse 2A

Pineapple Rag Partitura Piano

Some people rave about Wagnerian airs,
Some say the Spring Song is divine,
Talk like that is out of season, What I like is something pleasin’,
Pine Apple rag for mine.
Say honey, listen how that band syncopates,
Oh my, by isn’t it sublime.
Lordy, I could die a-dancing, If they’d play us that entrancing
Tune all the time.

Verse 2B

Cling to me, oh, sing to me, oh dearest,
Don’t hurry so, don’t worry so, hearest
That teasing rag, that squeezing rag, Lordy,
How I do love that drag, it’s so fascinating;
Come, honey love, my money love, slide me;
Come syncopate, don’t hesitate, glide me.
Say you’re a daisy, I’m going crazy,
Oh, that Pine Apple Rag.

Verse 2C

Hear me sigh, hear me cry, for that Pine Apple Rag.
What a dream, it sure does seem like Heaven when we drag.
Soulful eyes, hypnotize, you are wonderful wise,
You idolize me, so please surprise me by doing that Pine Apple rag.
