Boogie-Woogie Momma

“Boogie-Woogie Momma”
(in the style of Louis Jordan)

(Solo)
Well there’s a little woman lives down the block,
You oughta see her when she starts to reel and rock,
She’s got a finer movement than any clock,
And it’s always right on time;
I said she’s so fine,
That boogie-woogie momma of mine.

She’s got the boogie-woogie rhythm deep down in her soul;
She’s got the hoochie-coochie motion that you can’t control;
You oughta see my baby when she starts to rock ‘n’ roll,
It’s enough to blow your mind.
She’s so divine,
That boogie-woogie momma of mine.

Well she boogies to the north,
boogies to the south;
That gal can boogie, well
shut my mouth.

(Chorus)
Say woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo, woo, boogie-woogie momma,
That boogie-woogie momma of mine.

(Solo)
She’s my hoochie-coochie cutie down from Kansas City,
When she starts to swing her bootie, man she looks so pretty;
Her little boogie-woogie nooky’s known throughout the city,
Her moves are so sublime,
Say it one more time,
She’s that boogie-woogie momma of mine.

Well she boogies to the east,
boogies to the west,
She’s the boogie-woogie that I
love best.

(Chorus)
Say woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo, woo, boogie-woogie momma,
That boogie-woogie momma of mine.

(Solo, spoken)
You say you don’t know the boogie but you wanna be hip;
Just listen to me and I’ll shoot you this tip:
Now the boogie ain’t a dream,
the boogie is real;
It’s a beat
In your feet,
That your heart can feel.
The boogie’s in the air,
The boogie’s in the mud;
The boogie’s in the bone,
The boogie’s in the blood.
The boogie’s in the stars,
The boogie’s in the Earth;
The boogie sends love through
The whole universe.
Now you know ’bout the boogie and it’s all up to you,
To open your mind and let the boogie come through:
When your feet start tappin’
It means your synapses are snappin’;
And your blood is ’a pumpin’,
‘Cause your heart is ’a thumpin’:
Now your whole body’s groovin’,
You can set it to movin’:
From your head to your toe,
You just let yourself go.

(Chorus, sung)
Oh, I can boogie,
He can boogie,
She can boogie,
We can boogie,
You can do it to it
If you got the nerve to do it!

(Solo, sung)
All you got to do is stand in one spot,
Move your feet when the music gets hot;
That’s how you do it,
Ain’t nothin’ to it;
Gonna boogie
All night long, let’s go!

Oh woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo-woo, boogie-woogie momma,
woo, woo, boogie-woogie momma,

(Sung, slowly)
That boogie-woogie momma of mine;
I said that boogie-woogie momma
Offf miiine,
Oh yeahhh!
