Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabama They tied the knot so here I am.
Now before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand by the time I could talk I had my own band,
Money to burn and the girls were pretty it didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie.
When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode,
Now we were playing them halls and jammin' then until they moved me on over to M.G.M.
He said son have we got a deal for you gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too.
I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie But I can tell ya' right now I am born to boogie.
Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon and I never back down and I love a good challenge
Now I can be sweet and I can be mean I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans
Get down on you baby because I ain't no rookie I was put here to party and I was born to boogie
