Weeell,. they have to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',
A cat who was really hep, he put down a step
To new gyration soon, all the kids were twistin',
It didn't take long before the grown-ups were trying it,
Who's who was buying it all over town,
You see them, a-squirming and a-worming and a-twistin' around,
It spread like a forest blaze, its place became a craze
That rocks the nation now, everybody's twistin'.
(musical interlude)
Well oh well oh well oh well, they had to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',
And a cat who was really hep, he puts down a step
To new gyration soon, all the kids were twistin',
No, it didn't take long before the grown-ups were trying it,
Who's who was buying it all over town,
You see them, a-squirming and a-worming and a-twisting around
It spread like a fire, its place became a craze
That rocks the nation now, everybody's twistin'.
(musical interlude, then reprise until...
.............There's a-hopping, and a boppin', Sacro-iliacs a poppin'
never stoppin', (two drum beats) -everybody's twistin'. Bop!
The sacro-iliac is a joint in the lower spine, much exercised by twisting!
