You listen while I'm talkin' to you, now
Tell you what I'm gonna do now
There's a new thing going around now
And I'll tell what to put down

Move your body all around, and just shake
Ha, that's the way you do it
Oh, g'on, g'on, baby, now
Shake, shake, shake it baby
Ha, you shake it like a bowl of soup
You let it go a-loop-de-loop, yeah
Put your hands around your hips, yeah
Come on and let your backbone slip
Move your body like your hip and just shake
