Short intro -piano & instrumental

(Boy's hot, the boy's hot)
Shimmy, shimmy
(Blow his top, blow his top)
Shimmy, shimmy
(Always hot, always hot)
Shimmy, shimmy
Boy
(Yeah!)
Child, I could shimmy, now

(Going to - shimmy)
I learned to shimmy
Like my sister Kate, now
(Going to - sha-a-ake)
Shake like a jelly on a jelly plate, now
(Going to - sha-a-ke)
All the girls know that-a I can do it
And I can do it!
(Ye-eah!)
Yes, I can do it, now!

(First groove, first groove)
A-shimmy, shimmy
(Earth move, earth move)
Shimmy, shimmy
(Boy's home, boy's home)
Shimmy, shimmy
North, east (ee-yeah) south, west
We're gonna go south, now

(We're going to - sha-a-ake)
Ev'rybody in their neighborhood, now
(First groove - sha-a-ake)
Know I can shimmy, and I shimmy good, now
I'm not late 'cause I'm up to date
(Sha-a-ke)
An I can shimmy!
(Ye-eah!)
Like sister Kate, now

(sax & instrumental)

(First groove, first groove)
Shimmy, shimmy
(Earth move, earth move)
Shimmy, shimmy
(Boy's home, boy's home )
Shimmy, shimmy
North, just (ee-yeah) south-east
We're gonna go west, now

(sax & instrumental)

Come on, ev'rybody
(An sha-a-ake)
We're going to - (shimmy)
We're going to - (shimmy)
We're goin'
(Ye-eah!)

(sax & instrumental)

We're going to - (shimmy)
We're going to - (shimmy)
We're going to - (shimmy)
We're goin'
(Ye-eah!)

Going to - (sha-a-ake)
Ev'rybody in their neighborhood, now
You're going to - (sha-a-ake))
Know I can shimmy, and I shimmy good, now
(Sha-a-ake)
I'm not late 'cause I'm up to date
(Sha-a-ake)
An I can shimmy!
(Ye-eah!)
Like sister Kate, now

(Boy's cool, boy's cool)
Shimmy, shimmy is a-all I know-oh!
(Shimmy, shimmy)
(First groove, first groove)
Shimmy, shimmy is a-all I can do
(Shimmy, shimmy)
(Boy's home, boy's home)
Shimmy, shimmy, a-all night long
(Shimmy, shimmy)
Shimmy, (ye-eah) woo!
Is all I can do, now

Shimmy, shimmy, a-all night long
Shimmy, shimmy, a-all day, too

FADES-

Shimmy, shimmy
Oh, early in the mo'nin
Lucille (ye-eah!)
Is gonna sock it to me, now

Shimmy, shimmy.
