Make a move, get off your spine 
Shake your leg, tow the line 
Mum's the word, the doctor said 
Try your hand at this instead 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do your best 

Risk you take when on the make 
Is falling down upon the ground 
That's the breaks a bone or two 
Bring's it home it's up to you 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do - your best 

They're gonna move my spine? 

Make a move, get off your spine 
Shake your leg, tow the line 
Mum's the word, the doctor said 
Try your hand at this instead 

Standing fast as bold as brass 
Holding on until the last 
Call the tune and play it all day long 
There's a song that's just begun 
Strikes a chord in everyone 
It's the decent thing to do your best 
La-de-da-da-da-de-dah
