Tampa spoken:

'Take it away there, Bob, I'm lookin' at cha there
'I'm lookin' at cha'

'That's old Black Bob ticklin' the ivories, there
Ladies and gentlemen. Look at 'em there, c'mon. '

Sings:

You've got to get down to it
You've got to learn to do it
Because ev'rybody does it
And you got to learn to do it, too

You got to learn to sing it
You got to learn to swing it
Because ev'rybody's singin'
An you got to learn swing it, too

When you see two lovers
Huggin' and kissin', don't get ashamed
Take another shot an make it hot
An do the same old thing

Ooh, you got to learn to shake it
You got to learn to take it
Because ev'rybody does it
An you got to learn to do it, too

'Get it now, when they hot'

(instrumental)

When you see two lovers
Huggin' and kissin', don't get ashamed
Take another shot, make it hot!
Do the same old thing

Ooh, you got to learn to shake it
You've got to learn to take it
'Cause ev'rybody does it
You got to learn to do it, too

'c'mon, dance'.
