Here's a little tune we're gonna play for you,
There ain't nothin' to it and it's easy to do:
Called the Calloway Boogie,
It's the Calloway Boogie,
Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours a day!

If you like music with a boogie beat,
Here's a little ditty that's really all reet!
It's the Calloway Boogie,
It's the Calloway Boogie,
Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours a day!

I woke up with the blues the other day,
The cats started jamming and they blew away.
With the Calloway Boogie,
The Calloway Boogie,
Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours a day!

We play waltzes, bebop and jive,
But here's the kind of music that keeps you alive!
It's the Calloway Boogie,
It's the Calloway Boogie,
Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours a day!

If you like boogie with some hi-de-ho,
Just listen to me, here's the way it goes:
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi!
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho!
Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours a day
