Come here, sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip
About that new breed thing

He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

Come here, mama
And dig this crazy scene
He's not too fancy
But his line is pretty clean

He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

He's doing The jerk
He's doing The Fly
Don't play him cheap
'Cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing The Monkey, The Mashed Potatoes
Jump back Jack, See Ya Later, Alligator

Come here, sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
But I can dig the new breed thing

He ain't no drag
He's got a brand new bag

Oh papa, he's doing The jerk
Papa, he's doing The Jerk
He's doing The Twist, just like this
He's doing The Fly every day and every night
He's the thing, like The Boomerang

Hey
Come on, hey hey
Come on, hey hey
Said you're uptight, you're out of sight
Come on, see what you know
Come on, see what you know
I just want you to blow, Maceo, hey

Come on

Get loose, hey
Blow your horn
Jog on the log

Blow your horn
Let it drip

Blow your horn

Blow your horn
Blow your horn
Come on, again

Now, let me
Now let me tell you what he doing
He's doing The Jerk, doing The Fly
Don't play him cheap
You know he ain't shy
Doing The Monkey, The Mashed Potatoes
Jump back Jack, See Ya Later, Alligator

Come here, sister, hey
Mhm hey
Come on now
