Lyrics
Keep your hands in your pockets
Speak easy when you talk
Whistle while you're workin'
Shuffle when you walk
Let me hear your pockets jingle
Get you jumpin' up and down
And if you ain't got a single, gonna run you out of town

You'd better
Roll Daddy, Roll
Groovin' it fast and fine
You better roll daddy roll
Movin' down the line
Listen to me Mister, you got no chance to dance with my sister
Roll on, roll on,
One more time

Listen hard to what I'm sayin'
Don't give me no funky jive
Gonna get you after midnight
While you sleep inside your bed
Lay my stick down on you, right upside your head

If you don't
Roll Daddy, Roll
Groovin' it fast and fine
You better roll daddy roll
Movin' down the line
Listen to me brother, I got no use for you and you'd better
Roll Daddy, Roll
Groovin' it fast and fine
You better roll daddy roll
Movin' down the line
Listen to me brother, got no chance to dance with my mother

(Background: Roll daddy, roll, roll, repeated)
Roll on, roll on,
One more time
Roll on, roll on,
One more time
