Flat foot floogie with a floy, floy,

Flat foot floogie with a floy, floy, 
Flat foot floogie with a floy, floy, 
Floy, floy, floy, yeah! 
Send me on out there! 
[Shouting and muttering to the band.] 
Whenever your cares are chronic, 
Just tell the world, "go hang," 
You'll find a greater tonic, 
If you go on stumblin' with the gang! 
Hey, hey, hey, yes, yes! 
Well, all right then; get those floy-floys straight!
