Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954) is an English musician and singer-songwriter now living in Berlin, whose five Grammy Award nominations span from 1979 to 2001. He is probably best known for the 1979 hit song and first single "Is She Really Going Out with Him?", which still gets extensive US FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 success with "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". He was popular for his pop/rock and New Wave music early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical hybrids. more »

Boys, what you gonna say down there?
Oh boys, what you gonna say down there?
Palamar, shalamar, swanny shore
Let me dig that jive once more

Boys, take it right on down to the gator
Oh boys, gotta take a side elevator
Can't you hear those hip cats call
Come on boys let's have a ball

The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive
Makes you dig your jive on the mellow side
The jip-jam-jump is a solid jive
Makes you nine foot tall when you're four foot five

Now, don't you be that ickeroo
Get hip, come on and follow do
When you get your steady fool
You met your jump like the gators do

The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive
Makes you like your eggs on the jersey side
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive
Makes you hip hip on the mellow side

The jip-jam-jump is a solid jive
Makes you nine foot tall when you're four foot five
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive
Makes you hip hip on the mellow side

Now, don't you be that ickeroo
Get hip, come on and follow do
When you get your steady fool
You met your jump like the gators do

The jip-jam-jump is a jumpin' jive
Makes you like your eggs on the jersey side
The jip-jam-jumpin' jive
Makes you hip hip on the mellow side

Skibbel-de-doo 
Now I told you 'bout the jumpin' jive
Jip-jam-jum the jumpin' jive
I know you dug this mellow jive
Cause you dig it on the mellow side
