Well, I rocked over Italy and I rocked over Spain. I rocked in Memphis; It was all the same Til I rocked to Africa. I rolled off the ship. I seem them natives doin' an odd looking skip. I parted the weeds And I looked over the swamp, And I seen them cats doin' the Ubangi Stomp. Ubangi Stomp is a rock and roll. It beats anything that's ever been told. Ubangi Stomp, Ubangi style; When it kicks, It drives a cool cat wild. Well I looked up the chief; He invited me in. He said, "A heap big jam session's 'bout to begin." I grabbed up a tom and I picked up the beat. That crazy thing sent Shivers to my feet. I rocked and I rolled And I skipped with a smile. I did the Ubangi Stomp with a Ubangi style. Well, we rocked all night and part of the day. Had a good, rock-in' time With the chief's daughter Mae. I'm makin' good time and I'm gettin' in the know When the captain said, "Son, we've gotta go." I said, "That's all right. You go right ahead. I'm gonna Ubangi Stomp til I roll over dead." Ubangi Stomp is a rock and roll. It beats anything that's ever been told. Ubangi Stomp, Ubangi style; When it kicks, It drives a cool cat wild. Ubangi Stomp, thank you.
