I wanna to jump but I'm afraid I'll fall 
I wanna to holler but the joint's too small 
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too 
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu 

Want some other's baby that ain't all 
I wanna to kiss her but she's way too tall 
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too 
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu 

I wanna to squeeze her but I'm way too low 
I would be runnin' but my feet's too slow 
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too 
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu 
 
I wanna to squeeze her but I'm way too low 
I would be runnin' but my feet's too slow 
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too 
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu 

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home 
I know she's leavin' cause I'm takin' too long 
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too 
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu
