Swing That Thing
swing dancers

Swing that thing, doll.
Swing. Ya gotta swing the thing.

Hello, kitty, don’t you sure look pretty,
and it’s sure a pity you’re not dancing now.
If you’d like to Lindy, I’m the cat to show you how.

Say, sweet mollie, ain’t you cute, by golly,
you’re a hepcat dolly built for dancing, wow!
If you want to cut-a, let’s go out ‘n do it now.

You gotta jump at one to the count of eight
You gotta fly 'n floogie when you haul your freight
You need a hole in your stocking to dance
by the light of the moon.

We’re gonna cruise with Cab down to rhythm town
We’re gonna doodley-ah-dab when we’re truckin’ down.
You gotta bend an ear to hear the choo-choo choo
We gotta rug-ada-chug-ada-chug down to Kalamazoo.

Then we swing low. Then we fly high
Let it loose, little dolly, please, don’t be shy
just swing that thing, doll.
Swing, you gotta swing the thing
Swing that thing, doll.
Swing, you gotta swing the thing

Oh hep honey, when you hop like a bunny
you’re as sweet as the kisses in a candy store.
If you want to boogie, I’m the cat to show you more.

Say, sweet dolly, ain’t you reet, by golly,
you’re a bebop baby born for boppin’, wow!
If you want to boogie, let’s go out ‘n woogie now.

You need a jim jam jump with your hi-de-ho.
You gotta dig floy-joy when you do it with Moe.
You need a hole in your stocking to dance
by the light of the moon.

Our feet’ll sing sing sing to a Krupa beat.
We’ll swing it night and day in Sinatra heat.
We’re gonna bend an ear to hear the choo-choo choo
We’re gonna rug-ada-chug-ada-chug down to Kalamazoo.

Then we swing low. Then we fly high
Let it loose, little dolly, please, don’t be shy just
Swing that thing, doll.
Swing, you gotta swing the thing
Swing that thing, doll.
Swing, you gotta swing the thing
