It started in Roanoke a little whiles ago
A friend knew a dance that you ought to know
They call it flat footin' and it sure looks fine
Right now it's flat footin' it time

And you'll be flat footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that guitar pickin' it, pick it

Just let your arms hang right where they are
Then you'll start flat footin' it ? to the bar
Turn yourself loose all the law will allow
And you're doing that flat footin' it now

You'll be flat footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that drummer pickin' it, pick it

It started in Roanoke and came a long way
Now it's a flat footin' it USA
Good for your spirits and good for your health
You oughta try a little flat footin' yourself

And you'll be flat footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that bass fiddle pickin' it, pick it

Well, all of the students at the University
Shocked and amazed the existing faculty
Some dropped Biology and some cut their math
To enroll in a flat footin' it class

Flat footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is until you hear that band a' pickin' it, pick it
