(Johnny Otis)

I know a cat named way out Willie
He's got a cool little chick named Rockin' Millie
He can walk and stroll and Suzy Q
And do that crazy hand jive too

Papa told Willie you'll ruin my home
You and that hand jive has got to go
Willie said Papa don't put me down
They're doing 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 doing that hand jive with sister Flo
Grandma gave baby sister a dime
Said do that hand jive one more time
Doctor and a lawyer and an Indian chief
Now they all dig that crazy beat
Way out Willie gave them all a treat
When he did that hand jive with his feet

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

Now Willie and Millie got married last fall
They had a little Willie Jr and that ain't all
Well the baby got famous and it's clear to see
They're doing that hand jive on TV

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

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