Mercedes:
Before I was born, late one night,
My papa said everything's alright
The doctor laughed when Ma lay down
With her stomach bouncing all around
Cause the beebop stork was about to arrive
Mama gave birth to the hand-jive

Mercedes and Marley:
I could barely walk when I milked a cow
When I was three I pushed a plow

Jake:
While chopping wood I moved my legs
I started dancing when I gathered eggs

Marley and Jake:
The townfolk clapped, I was only five
He'll out dance 'em all, he's born to hand-jive

Mercedes:
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah - everybody

Mercedes with New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Born to hand-jive, baby,
Born to hand-jive, baby

Mercedes:
How low can you go?

Marley:
How low can you go?

Jake:
How low can you go?

Ryder:
How low can you go?

Jake:
Higher!

Ryder:
Higher!

Marley:
Higher!

Mercedes:
And higher, yeah!

Ryder:
Now can you hand jive, baby?

Ryder and Mercedes with New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Oh can you hand jive baby? (Mercedes: Baby, yeah! )

Ryder with New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Now can you hand jive baby? (Mercedes: Can you hand jive?)

Ryder and Mercedes with New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Oh can you hand jive baby?

New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Oh yeah (Mercedes: Oh yeah)
Oh yeah (Mercedes: Oh yeah, yeah)
Oh yeah (Mercedes: Oh yeah)

Ryder and Mercedes with New Directions, Mike and Kitty:
Born to hand jive, oh yeah!
