(instrumental intro)

So, now we got something new
It's a dance anyone can do
Grandma-ma and grampa, too
Start truckin' and Suzy Q

In Harlem and Paris, too
Ev'rybody knows what to do
So simple and same with two
Start Truckin' and Suzy Q

The young and gay
The old and gray
Night and day
Ev'rybody doin' it, hey-hey-hey

Get busy an learn it, too
I'll show you just how to do
I know you're gonna love it, too
Start Truckin'' and Suzy Q

(instrumental - all)

So, now we got something new
It's the dance anyone can do
Grandmammy and grampa, too
Start Truckin' and Suzy Q

In Harlem and Paris, too
Ev'rybody know what to do
So simple and same way, too
Stop truckin' an Suzy Q

'Get outta here'

(instrumental to end)
