Cliff Richard – Willie And The Hand Jive lyrics

Way back when in fifty eight
We had a move that move was great
We could walk and stroll and susie q
We could do that crazy hand jive too

Remember a cat called way out Willie
A cool cat called rockin' Billy
Mama said to Willie you'll ruin my home
And you and that hand jive have got to go
cause he was hand jivin' he was hand jivin'
He would hand jive day and night hand jive

Willie had a girl called jivin' Jilly
Inhibitions she didn't have any
Willie would stop Jilly kept cryin'
To let him do that hand jive one more time
They were hand jivin' they were hand jivin'
They would hand jive day and night
Hand jive day and night

Willie and Jilly got married one fall
They had a little Willie Junior and that's not all
Little Willie got famous and it's plain to see
That he did that hand jive on tv

They were hand jivin' they were hand jivin'
They would hand jive day and night hand jive
Always hand jivin' yeah hand jivin'
We would hand jive day and night hand jive

I can remember about fifty four
Rock'n'roll was at my door
Fifty five and Elvis was king
Rock'n'roll was everything
Fifty six fifty seven rock'n'roll carried me to heaven
And looking in on fifty eight
They opened up that pearly gate
We could rock we could roll
Everyone could do the stroll
Dancin' just to stay alive
We all did the crazy hand jive
