Johnny Otis Show – Willie And The Hand Jive lyrics

I know a cat named Way-Out Willie
Had a cool little chick named Rockin' Billie
Now, he can walk in stone
Susie-Q, can do that crazy hand jive too

Papa said, "Wille, you ruin my home
You and that hand jive have got to go"
Willie said, "Papa, don't you put me down
Been doin' that hand jive all over town"

Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive
Doin' that crazy hand jive

Mama, Mama look at Uncle Joe
He's doin' that hand jive with sister Flo
Grandma gave baby sister a dime
Said, do that hand jive one more time

Well, a doctor and the lawyer and the Indian chief
Well, they all dig that crazy beat
Way-Out Willie gave 'em all a treat, yeah, come on
When he did that hand jive with his feet

Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive
Doin' that crazy hand jive

Well, Willi and Millie got married last fall
They had a little Willie Junior and that ain't all
The baby got famous in his crib you see, come on
By doin' that hand jive on tv, right now, right now

Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive
Doin' that crazy hand jive

Hey, hey
