Hi everybody
I'm Archie Bell of the Drells, from Houston, Texas
We don't only sing 
But we dance just as good as we walk
In Houston, we just started a new dance
Called the Tighten Up
This is the music we tighten up with

First tighten up on the drums
Come on now, drummer
I want you to tighten it up for me now, oh, yeah
Tighten up on that bass now
Tighten it up, ha, ha, yeah
Now let that guitar fall in
Oh, yeah
Tighten up on that organ now
Yeah, you do the tighten up, yeah, now

I said, if you can do it now
It sure would be tough
Now look here, come on now
Now make it mellow

Let's tighten it up now
Do the tighten up
Everybody can do it now
So get to it
We're gonna tighten up
Let's do the tighten up
You can do it now
So baby, get to it

Look to your left now
Look to your right
Everybody can do it
But don't you get too tight
Come on and tighten up
Let's tighten it up now
Let's tighten it up now
Tighten it up
Oh, do the tighten up
Come on and tighten it up
Tighten it up now, come on now, Billy

Tighten it up, oh, yeah
Sock it to me now, tighten it up
Come on and tighten up that bass, oh, yeah
Now look here, I want that guitar to fall in on there
Tighten it up now
Oh, yeah
Now tighten it up, organ

Yeah, now everybody tighten it up now
Now look here, we gonna make it mellow for you now
We gonna make it mellow now

Oh, tighten it up
You can get it
Move to your left, move to your right
Tighten it up now
Everything will be outta sight
Come on and tighten it up
Tighten it up now
You can do it
