Do you come on like Shorty George and me?
Just speel some jive, we'll dig you out, you see.
Well, all reet!

Are you ready?
Yes, we're ready, Joe!
Jumping steady?
Jumping steady, Joe!
You look solid, Joe,
All I want to know,
Are you all reet?
Yes, we're all reet!

You can get it
Yes, we get it!
If you set it
Yes, we set it, Joe!
Come on, let me go,
All I want to know,
Are you all reet?
Yes, we're all reet!

I'm like the tree,
I'm all root,
Hep to the jep
What it's all aboot!
Stashed like a top,
Don't miss a stop,
I dig my kicks from the groovy lot!

Are you really?
Yes, we're really!
Trilly frilly? Woo-woo!
Woo-woo!
I don't go Navaho,
Come and let me know,
Are you all reet?
Yes, we're all reet!

Are you ready, Joe?
Yes, I'm ready, old man!
Jumpin' steady, Joe?
Jumpin' with the jive, Jack!
Then all we to know...
What do you want to know?
Are you all reet?
Jump in the groove and go!

Yes, he's all reet!
Yes, he's all reet!

I'm like the tree,
I'm all root,
Hep to the jep
What it's all aboot!
Stashed like a top,
Don't miss a stop,
I dig my kicks from the groovy plot!

Are you really?
Yes, we're really!
Trilly frilly frilly frilly frilly?
Woo-woo!
Now, don't go Navaho,
Come and let me know,
Are you all reet?
Yes, we're all reet!

There's one thing we want to know,
Are we solid; do we send you, Joe?
We are ready and we want to know:
Are you all reet?
