I have learnt there's a magical spot at the hop
Come with me to the church on the corner, the hop
There's nuts and crisps and there's see-see-cola on tap

Tell me what do you say?
(Tell me what do you say?)
Tell me what do you say?
I tell you, life begins at the hop, boys and girls

Tell me what do you say?
(Tell me what do you say?)
Tell me what do you say?
(Tell me what do you say?)
I tell you, life begins at the hop, boys and girls

I have learnt there's a magical spot at the hop
Come with me to the church on the corner the hop
There's nuts and crisps and there's see-see-cola on tap
A good time had by those boys and those girls at the hop

Tell me what do you say?
(Tell me what do you say?)
Tell me what do you say?
I tell you, life begins at the hop
Life begins at the hop
Life begins at the hop, boys and girls
