intro

Hee hee hee hee, twist, ahh, we're back

chorus

Come on, baby, let's do the twist, come on, baby, let's do the twist
Take me by my little hand and go like this

verse 1

The party was packed, I'm talking back to back
There was a rapper that was rapping to a beat that was wack
They was going through the motions out on the dance floor
And when the rapper was done, they wasn't yelling encore
The people were tired of the same old groove
They wanted something def, something new and improved
Something easy to do but hard to resist
"I got something for y'all, what do you call it the twist"

chorus

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chubby Checker and The Fat Boys, we're doing the twist
Take us by our little hand and go like this

verse 2

We, we, we broke into the booth and the record stacks
Came up with "The Twist" and we were scratching the track
People started jamming hard to the funky sound
Did the twist down and up, then up and down
Then I heard somebody yell, yo, Chubby's here
The people took a little pause, just to stop and stare
He said "I'll show you people, how to twist with style
Cause I've been doing the twist for a long, long while"

chorus

Oh, you should see Prince Markie Dee
Check out that Kool Rock, he's rocking like me
Here comes B-Beat Box, come on, do it, Buffy

bridge

Come on, baby, come, come, come, come, come on, baby
Do, do, do, do the twist, do, do, do, do the twist

chorus

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chub and the Fat Boys, we're doing the twist
Take the world by the hand and do the twist

verse 3

Chubby took my sister down to the dance floor
Did the twist so def, the crowd yelled for more
So I Ponyed with my mother, did the Fly with my goil
And when Buff did the Limbo, we was rocking the world

chorus

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chubby Checker and the Fat Boys, we're doing the twist
Take the world by the hand and go like this
Hey, the West coast and on the East coast
And in the South, and in the North
And all over the world, what time is it?

outro

Come on, baby (Twist to the left, twist to the right)
Let's do the twist (Twist up and down, twist all night)
Chubby Checker (Come on, come on)
And the Fat Boys (Come on, come on, come on, come on)
We're doing the twist (Come on, come on, come on)
Take us by our little hands and go like this
Oh, yeah, and do the twist, yeah, just like me
Ooh, yeah, and do the twist, oh, yeah.

This song is from the album "Fat Boys On Rewind", "Coming Back Hard Again" and "All Meat, No Filler!".
