(instrumental)

Come on, baby
(Ooo bump, bump)
Let's do the twist
(Ooo bump, bump)
Come on, baby
(Ooo bump, bump)
Let's do the twist
(Ooo, bump, bump)
Take me by my lil' ol' hand, now
(Ooo, na-na-na-now)
And go like this

Ee-yeah, twist
(Round an around an around an around)
Baby, baby twist
(Round an around an around an around)
Ooo, just
(Round an around an around an around)
Just like this
(Round an around an around an around)
Come on little miss
(Ooo, bump)
And do the twist
(Round an round an round an round)

My daddy is sleeping
And mama ain't around
Ooh, daddy's just sleeping
And mama ain't around
We gonna twist it, twist it, twist it
'Till we tear the house down

Come on and twist it
(Round an around an around an around)
Babe, baby twist it
(Round an around an around an around)
Ooo-ooo-ooo, just
(Round an around an around an around)
Just like this
(Round an around an around an around)
Come on little miss
(Ooo, bump)
And do the twist
(Round an around an around an around)

Ee-yeah!

Oh and you should-a seen
My little sis
You should see, my
My little sis
She knows how to rock
She knows how to twist

Ee-yeah, twist
(Round an around an around an around)
Baby, baby twist it
Ooo-ooo-ooo, just
(Round an around an around an around)
Just like this
(Round an around an around an around)
Come on, little miss
And do the twist

Yeah!
(Round an around an around an around)
That's alright
(Round an around an around an around)
Yeah!
(Round an around an around an around)
Twist all night
(Round an around an around an around)
Twist
(Ooo, bump)
Twist!
(Round an around an around)
