The Jerk

by The Larks

The Larks were an African American vocal group, active in the early 1950s. They were not the same group as the Los Angeles-based Larks (originally The Meadowlarks) featuring Don Julian.

Girl, hey what's that you're doin'?
Girl, girl, what's that you're doin'?
You've got to show me the steps to it
Somehow I'm gonna learn how to do it

Do the jerk, hey
Do the jerk, girl, come on and work, hey
Do the jerk
Girl, how do you move your hips so fine?
Girl (come on time)
Work it out, right on time
Everybody's got the beat, hey look at me
Doin' the jerk, yeah, now watch me work
Girl, now do the jerk, hey, do the jerk
Go on and soul, soul, soul, soul
Soul, everybody now, soul, soul, soul
You don't know how to do it?
Come on, gonna teach it to ya'
I'm doin' the jerk, yeah
Watch me work, girl, now

Do the jerk, come on time
Do the jerk, let me see you work
Do the jerk, everybody
Do the jerk, come on now
Do the jerk, with a little bit of soul
Do the jerk, show 'em girl
Do the jerk, work, work, work
Do the jerk, come on girl
Do the jerk, listen everybody
Do the jerk, I like the way you work
Do the jerk, with soul now, girl
Do the jerk, hey hey!
