Lyrics
It's the dance you should know
When the lights are down low
Grab your baby
Then go
Do the hucklebuck
Do the hucklebuck
If you don't know how to do it
Boy
You're out of luck
Push your partner out
Then you hunch your back
Have a little movement in your sacroiliac
Wiggle like a snake
Wobble like a duck
That's the way you do it when you do the hucklebuck
