Little Eva – The Locomotion lyrics

Everybody's doing a brand new dance, now
(come on baby do the loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance, now
(come on baby do the loco-motion)

My little baby sister can do it with ease
It's easier than learning your ABC’s
So come on, come on, do the loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
Come on, baby, jump up, jump back
Well, I think you got the knack, whoa, whoa

Now that you can do it let's make a chain, now
(come on baby do the loco-motion)
A chuga, chuga motion like a railway train, now
(come on baby do the loco-motion)

Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lotta soul
So come on, come on, do the loco-motion with me

(Sax Solo)

Yea, yea, yea, yeah move around the floor in a loco-motion
(come on baby do the loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion
(come on baby do the loco-motion)

There's never been a dance that's so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on do the loco-motion with me

(Come on) You gotta swing your hips, now
(Come on) That's right, (do the loco-motion) you're doin' fine
(Come on, do the loco-motion)
Come on, baby, (come on, do the loco-motion) hmm, hmm, hmm, jump back
(Come on, do the loco-motion)
Jump back, (come on) you're lookin' good, (Come on, do the loco-motion)
Hmm, hmm, hmm
Jump back, (come on) jump back (do the loco-motion)….
