Now, come gather 'round us, folks,
Let us tell you 'bout this swing,
Let us tell you 'bout the dance was invented just for you!
Now, you swing over here,
Now, you swing over there,
For you swing on out and you do the Suzie-Q!
Oh, you dance in!
Yes, you're prancin'!
When you hear the music play, that's your cue!
Yes, you're truckin'!
Doin' the shim-sham,
Then you swing on out and you're doin' the Suzie-Q!
Now, stop unless you do forget,
You ain't seen nothin' yet,
Until you see this dance that's new!
Now, you truck over here, you swing
You tip just like you're walkin' on air,
Then you're doin' the Suzie-Q!
Now, hot step new that you will
Good old pep and low-down rhythm!
Now, come and give yourself a treat,
Watch these babies shake their feet,
What they're doin'? They're doin' the Suzie-Q!
