The Traits – Harlem Shuffle lyrics

You move it to the left, yeah
You go for yourself
You move it to the right
Yeah, if it takes all night

Now take it kinda slow
With a whole lot of soul
Don't move it too fast
Make it last

You know you scratch
Just like a monkey
Yeah, you do, real, yeah
You slide it to the limbo
Yeah, how low can you go

Oh, come on, baby
I don't want you
To stumble now
Just move it right here
To the Harlem shuffle

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Do the Harlem shuffle
Oh, do the monkey shine now
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Do the Harlem shuffle

Hitch, hitch hike, baby
Across the floor
Whoa, whoa, whoa
I can't stand it no more

Now come on, baby
Now get into your slide
Ride, ride, ride
Little pony, ride, yeah

Shake, shake, shake
Shake a tailfeather, baby
Shake, shake, shake
Shake a tailfeather, baby
Shake, shake, shake
Do the monkey time, baby
