Rufus Thomas – The Breakdown (Part 1) lyrics

Honey, baby, I been told
You know how to
Shake the butter bowl
I got to see for myself
If you got any butter left

Breakdown to the left
Breakdown to the right
Breakdown to the one
I'm gonna love her tonight

[Chorus:]
Do the breakdown, children
Break on down
Do the breakdown, children
Break on down

You got it strong
My, my, my
Just look around
And grab your guy

Stop where you are
Let your big hip rock
Show him how
Your love can rock

Breakdown for me
Breakdown for you
Breakdown to the one
Gonna give it to

[Chorus:]

Come on, children
Look at me
I'm showing you how
It's supposed to be

Do it in the evening
Late at night
I'm gonna show you
Breakdown is alright

[Chorus:]

Listen
It's a brand new dance
That's going around
It's not the Funky Chicken
It's called the Breakdown

It's a brand new dance
That's going around
It's ain't Push and Pull
It's called the Breakdown

Now
[Chorus:]

Mama can do it
Papa too
Grandma, Grandpa
They're doing it too

Mama, Mama
Just look at Sis
She's in the backyard
Breaking down like this

[Chorus:]
