I was one or two just lying in my crib
Shaking that rattle like I always did
Susie strolled in that little girl next door
Next thing you know we were rolling on the floor

Mama came a runnin' to her little pride and joy
Said bless his little heart he's an excitable boy

High school redneck rebel to the bone
Running eighty miles an hour in a thirty mile zone
Steal a little kiss skip a little school
Break another heart bend another rule

When I was a little boy way back home in Liverpool
My mama told me, I was great
Then when I was a teenager, I knew that I had got something going
All my friends told me, I was great

And now I'm a man, a woman took me by the hand
And you know what she told me I was great

I was in the greatest show on earth
For what it was worth
Now I'm really fifty-two
And all I wanna do, is boogaloo

I looked in the mirror, I saw my wife and kids
And you know what they told me, I was great

Yes, my name is Billy Shears
You know it has been for so many years
Now I'm really fifty-two
And all I wanna do, is boogaloo, hey
