John Lee Hooker – Boogie Chillun lyrics

Well my mother didn't 'low me, just to stay out all night long
Well my mother didn't 'low me, just to stay out all night long
I didn't care she didn't 'low, I would boogie anyhow

When I first came to town people
I was walkin' down Hastings Street
Everybody was talkin' about, the Henry Swing Club
I decided I drop in there, when I got down I said, "Yes, people"
They were really havin' a ball yes, I know boogie chillun

I was layin' down, one night I heard mama n' papa talkin'
I heard papa tell mama, let that boy boogie-woogie
It's in him and it got to come out
And I felt so good, went on boogie just the same
