Version: Album version (4:17)

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!

I PHONED UP MY DOCTOR TO SEE WHAT'S THE MATTER,
HE SAID, "COME ON OVER."
I SAID, "DO I HAVE TO?"
MY KNEES STARTED SHAKIN', MY WRIST STARTED ACHIN'
WHEN MY DOCTOR SAID TO ME:

"OH MY MY, OH MY MY, CAN YOU BOOGIE, CAN YOU SLIDE?
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, YOU CAN BOOGIE IF YOU TRY.
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, IT'S GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU ALIVE."

THE HEAD NURSE SHE BLEW IN, JUST LIKE A TORNADO,
WHEN THEY STARTED DANCIN', I JUMPED OFF THE TABLE.
I FELT MYSELF HEALIN' AND AS I WAS LEAVIN',
THIS IS WHAT THEY SAID TO ME:

"OH MY MY, OH MY MY, CAN YOU BOOGIE, CAN YOU SLIDE?
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, YOU CAN BOOGIE IF YOU TRY.
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, IT'S GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU ALIVE."

(Oh - yeah hey!
All right!
Oh!
Yeah! Yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
All right now!
Ooh!)

NOW IF YOU SHOULD SLOW DOWN AND YOU'RE FEELIN' LOW DOWN,
DON'T CALL UP YOUR DOCTOR, JUST GRAB YOU A PARTNER.
IT'S WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSIN', I'VE GOT YOUR PRESCRIPTION,
THAT BOOGIE WOOGIE REMEDY.

"OH MY MY, OH MY MY, YOU CAN BOOGIE, YOU CAN SLIDE?
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, WE CAN BOOGIE 'TIL WE DIE.
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, IT'S GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU ALIVE, ALRIGHT."

"OH MY MY, OH MY MY, WATCH ME BOOGIE, WATCH ME SLIDE,
OH MY MY, (ow!) OH MY MY, BORN TO BOOGIE, BORN TO SLIDE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, OO-WEE, BOOGIE, OO-WEE, AYE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, PLAY THAT BOOGIE, PLAY THAT SLIDE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, LOVE THAT BOOGIE, LOVE THAT SLIDE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, OH, MY BOOGIE, OH, MY SLIDE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, COME ON, BABY, COME ON NOW. (can you boogie)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, COME ON, BABY, I'M WILLING TO DIE. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY, COME ON, BABY, COME ON, TRY. (can you boogie?)
OH MY MY, OH MY MY."
