Group hitchhike hitchhike
Popeye
Cc standing on the side of the street
Uh huh
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Popeye
Cc clapping both his hand to the beat
Oh yeah
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Cc hey
Group popeye
Cc tryin' hard to bum a ride
Group popeye
Cc tryin' but none come around
They go by
Hey
Group popeye
Well now clap your hands
And thumb your thumbs
That's how the popeye dance is done
Popeye
Cc standing there and it's gettin' cold
Oh yeah
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Popeye
Cc shakin' now to warm up his soul
Uh huh
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Cc hey
Group popeye
Cc double turn and with the thumb
Group popeye
Cc tryin' but nobody comes
They go by
Hey
Group popeye
Well now clap your hands
And thumb your thumbs
That's how the popeye dance is done
Yeah
(Instrumental break)
Popeye
Cc standin' there and it's gettin' late
Oh yeah
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Popeye
Cc dancin' there and he's movin' great
Oh yeah
Group hitchhike hitchhike
Cc yeah
Group popeye
Cc she's a gorgeous chick all fine
She just stops and hollers hi
That lucky guy
Don't cha know
Group popeye
Well now clap your hands
And thumb your thumbs
That's how the popeye dance is done
Cc fly
Hey
Popeye... fade
