Rock that thing! Oh, rock that thing!
When you hear those piano keys
It will make you shake from your head to your knees.
Just rock that thing! Oh, rock that thing!
Grab your gal, hold her tight,
Now you can rock that thing just right!
Rock that thing! Baby, let's rock that thing!

Rock that thing! Oh, rock that thing!
Preacher in the pulpit shakin' his text,
Sister Jane's in the corner hollering, "Who'll be next?
Just to rock that thing, oh, rock that thing!"
Preacher said, "Sister don't be so bold,
I'll do something just to save your soul,
Rock that thing, Sister, let's rock that thing."

Rock that thing, oh rock that thing!
Pictures on the wall are trying to dance.
The rug's on the floor hollering, "Give me a chance
To rock that thing, oh, rock that thing!"
Bring in a gallon and serve a pint,
I'm gonna rock that thing all night.
Rock that thing, babe, I'm gonna rock that thing!

Rock that thing, oh rock that thing,
Mama and papa sitting in a chair,
Mama said to papa, "Listen here,
Let's rock that thing, oh, rock that thing,
Got a brand-new dress, a brand-new hat,
I'm gonna stroll from flat to flat,
Just to rock that thing, baby, just to rock that thing!"
