The singers answer questions about jook joints, and define them as "bar rooms," formerly known as "festival halls," "a name colored people give dance halls," etc. They think the term jook joint originated in sawmill camps. Jooks are described: "an outlaw place; don't nobody go there but outlaw people." The jook joint song is reported to have been heard in jook joints in Perry, Florida, and in Suwannee County, and in the Interstate Jook.
