Got my hands on a little bit of dough
So I went to the grocery store
And got some steaks to go
Went by, and picked up my gal, Teddi Jo
We had ourselves a picnic
Beside a dirty road

Rooty toot toot
Rooty toot toot
We had it made in the shade
Like a bell through the hoop
Spinning and tumbling inside this
Hoola hoop
Living and learning rooty toot toot

We laid out a blanket
And started a fire.
Had the radio playing
From inside the car
I took off my shirt
And kicked off my shoes
She read the paper
And told me the news
She said, "There's a lot of people out there"
"Who are at the end of their rope"
"Sometimes, baby you've got to lay low"

Rooty toot toot
Rooty toot toot
We had it made in the shade
Like a bell through the hoop
Spinning and tumbling inside this
Hoola hoop
Livin' and learnin' rooty toot toot

We stayed there all day
We both get us some real
Good suntans
I thought, that was OK
Sometimes life can be so grand

We were getting' ready
To shake out that place
When the Illinois state trooper
Got in my face
He said, "You're on private property"
But once he cooled down, he was OK
Sometimes you're golden, man
That's all I got to say

Rooty toot toot
Rooty toot toot
We had it made in the shade
Like a bell through the hoop
Spinnin' and tumblin' inside this
Hoola hoop
Livin' and learnin' rooty toot toot
