Come on, you children, gather around,
Gather arond, you children,
And we will lose that evil spirit
Called the Voodoo, Voodoo!

Nothing but trouble if he has found,
If he has found you, children!
But you can chase the hoodoo
With the dance that you do, you do.

Let me lead the way,
There's a new belief today,
But he'll never hound you;
Stamp on the ground, you children, come on!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!
Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Don't you lose time!  Don't you lose time!
Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time
Now for you and me!

On the sands of time
You are only a pebble,
Don't forget that!
But remember, trouble must be treated
Just like a rebel;
Then send him to the Devil!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!
Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Hallelujah!
Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Don't you lose time!  Don't you lose time!
Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time
Now for you and me!

On the sands of time
You are only a pebble,
But remember, trouble must be treated
Just like a rebel;
Then send him to the Devil!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Hallelujah!
Ev'rybody come along and join the jubilee!
Come along now!

Clap your hands!  Then slap your thigh!
Come on, let's do that dance!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Don't you lose time!  Don't you lose time!
Come along, it's "Shake your shoes" time
Now for you and me!

On the sands if time, come on now!
Mm-mmm!
Then send him to the Devil!

Clap your hands!  Slap your thigh!
Hallelujah!
Ev'rybody come along and join the jubil-(scat)!
