Well, if your hands start a-clappin'
And your fingers start a-poppin'
And your feet start a-movin' around
And if you start to swing and sway

When the band starts to play
A real cool way out sound
And if you get to can't help it and you can't sit down
You feel like you gotta move around

You get a shot of rhythm and blues.
With just a little rock and roll on the side
Just for good measure.
Get a pair of dancin' shoes

Well, with your lover by your side
Don't you know you're gonna have a rockin' time, see'mon!
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
If you start to dance and sing

And chills come up on you
And if the rhythm finally gets you and the beat gets you too
Well, here's something for you to do

Get a shot of rhythm and blues
With just a little rock and roll on the side
Just for good measure
Get a pair of dancin' shoes

Well, with your lover by your side
Don't you know you're gonna have a rockin' time, see'mon!
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
If you start to dance and sing

And chills come up on you
And if the rhythm finally gets you and the beat gets you too
Well, here's something for you to do

Get a shot of rhythm and blues
Get a pair of dancin' shoes
Get a shot of rhythm and blues
Well, with your lover by your side

Don't you know you're gonna have a rockin' time, see'mon!
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
If you start to dance and sing
And chills come up on you

And if the rhythm finally gets you and the beat gets you too
Well, here's something for you to do
Well, here's something for you to do
Well, here's something for you to do
