Now listen here friends, I wanna tell you
About a brand new dance that you gotta learn to do
It's called the oakie boogie, you do it oakie style
That mean oakie boogie is bound to drive you wild
Well it's gotta be fast, now you can't go slow
When you hear that rhythm, Lord you gotta do-si-do
When you do the oakie boogie, and do it oakie style
That mean oakie boogie is bound to drive you wild

Now ol' man Mose on a cane and a crutch
Tried to do the oakie boogie just a little too much
He tried to overdo it, Oklahoma style
That mean oakie boogie is bound to drive you wild
When you get started it's hard to stop
If you don't look out, you're gonna blow your top
When you do the oakie boogie, and do it oakie style
That mean oakie boogie is bound to drive you wild

Well it's gotta be fast, now you can't go slow
When you hear that rhythm, Lord you gotta do-si-do
When you do the oakie boogie, and do it oakie style
That mean oakie boogie is bound to drive you wild
When you get started it's hard to stop
If you don't look out, you're gonna blow your top
When you do the oakie boogie, and do it oakie style
That mean ol' oakie boogie and let her drive you wild

Now you got the beat, I'll tell you what to do
Grab your partner and follow on through
Let's do the oakie boogie, Oklahoma style
That mean ol' oakie boogie drives everybody wild
