One, two, three
One, two, three

Ow!
Do it!
Alright!
Uh!

Got to know how to Pony*
Like Bony Moronie*

Mash Potato*
Do The Alligator*

Put your hand on your hips, yeah
Let your backbone slip

Do the Watusi*
Like my little Lucy

Ow! Uh!
Na, na-na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na-na
I need somebody help me say it one time!

[Chorus:]
Na, na-na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na-na-na

Wow-Oooow!

Oow! Uh!

H'uh!
Feel pretty good y'all
Uh-h'uh!

Na, na-na-na-na

C'mon ya'all, let's say it one mo' time!

[Chorus:]
Na, na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na

Ooooh!

Dancin' in the alley
With Long Tall Sally*

Twistin* with Lucy
Doin' the Watusi

Roll over on your back
I like it like that

Do that Jerk*, oh
Watch me work, ya'all

Ow!
Do it!

Wow!
Do it!

Watch me do it

Ooh, help me!
Ooh, help me!

Fades-

Oh, help me!
Ooh, help me.
