Dovells – The Jitterbug lyrics

Can you dance
Here's your chance
Throw back the rug
And let's Jitterbug

The Jitterbug is back again
The Jitterbug, remember when
We danced to Kansas City blues
I'll go walk in my blue suede shoes

The Jitterbug is back again
Let's Jitterbug like we did then

(Jitterbug, Jitterbug)
Get your girl
(Jitterbug, Jitterbug)
Start to whirl
(Jitterbug, Jitterbug)
Throw her out
(Jitterbug, Jitterbug)
Shake and shout
Now that you know how

It started with
Shake, Rattle and Roll
The next big dance
Was called the Stroll

Pony, Twist and Bristol Stomp
Madison? hit the top
Throw back the lights? now
Rip back the rug, let's really rock
Let's Jitterbug


Ahh, come on now


I like this whirl, come on now
Now that you know how

Ah, look at everybody dancing
Like they used to, come on
Let's dance now like we used to

Now that you know how
