(Terry Thompson)
A-when your hands start a-clappin'
And your fingers start a-poppin'
When your feet wanna move around
And ya start to swing and sway
And the band begins to play
With a real cool way out sound
Then ya get the "can't help-it's"
And ya can't sit down
Feel like ya wanna move 'round an 'round
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
With just a little rock n' roll on the side
Just for good measure
Need a pair of dancin' shoes
With your lover by your side
Don't you know you're gonna have a lot of pleasure
Don't you worry about a thing
You start to dance and sing
And the chill bumps come up on you
Well, the beat'll finally get you
When the beat gets you, too and
Here's the thing for you to do
Hey, now, now, now
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
Well, just a little rock n' roll on the side
Just for good measure
Need a pair of dancin' shoes
With your lover by your side
Don't ya know you're gonna have a lot of pleasure
Don't ya worry about a thing
Ya start to dance and sing
Then the chill bumps come up on you
Well, the rhythm finally gets you
When the beat get you too, now
Here's the thing for you to do
Hey, now, now, now
Hey, now, now, now
Oh when, your hands start a clappin'
And your fingers start poppin'
When your feet wanna move around
Yeah, you start to swing and sway
And the band begins to play
With that real cool way out sound
Ya get the "can't help it's"
And ya can't sit down
Feel like ya wanna move 'round an 'round
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
With just a little rock n' roll on the side
Just for good measure
Need a pair of dancin' shoes
With your lover by your side
Don't ya know you're gonna have a lot of pleasure
Don't you worry about a thing
Ya start to dance and sing
And the chill bumps come up on you
Oh, the rhythm finally get you
When the beat get you too, now
Here's the thing for you to do
Hey, now, now, now (get it)
Hey, now, now, now
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
(I need a shot)
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
(Oh Lord)
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
(Oooh)
Need a shot of rhythm and blues
(That's right)
