Barry Manilow - Jump Shout Boogie Medley lyrics

rate me

Well not to long ago in 1944

when every mothers son was going off to war

they had to lift there spirits high

for uncle sam, mother hood and apple pie

instead of spending money that they didn't have

in hot spots in the Bronx

they went to here the kind of jazz

you hear in funkie hunkie tonks


it made you want to

jump, shout knock your self out

the boggie-woggie beat is what I'm talking about

if you have the heebie jeebies you can dance away

to the boggie-woggie music of piano man will play

and you could jump, shout, knock yourself out

the boogie-woogie beat is what I'm talking about

you could pull a switcheroonie if your belts go down

with the boogie-woogie beat of a piano man who's going to town

it had the kind of rhythm that would fill the hall

the plinkin' and the pluckin' drove 'em off the wall

and they would dance and drink their gin

and when the fuzz buzz they joined in

so everybody partied 'till the cows came home

'cause that's what boggie's for

and everynight that dump will jump

and keep them coming back for more

because they make you wanna....


it made you wanna jump, shout

who wanna jump, shout

you wanna jump, shout

to the boogie-woogie music of a piano man was playing

you could jump, shout, knock yourself out

the boogie-woogie beat is what I'm talking about

you could pull a switcharoonie if your belts go down

to the boogie-woogie beat of piano

shake it yes, yes, yes [repeat 4x]

Come go walkin' with me now

Walk up Avenue C, now

Chicks all lookin' so pretty

They don't give me no pity

Avenue C is the grooviest thing in the city

I never dug an avenue so enjoyable to me

"C" Avenue is groovy.

Yes, it was groovy as it could be

Walk with me down Avenue C

Man I really want to stay

Come on baby, while we ramble, walk beside me while we ramble

You dig it too I feel you do, what a scenic hike, it's a walk that you're bound to like.

[Backround Singers Do "Jumpin At The Woodside"]

I was blue and I was always wearing a frown, because my gal had turned me down.

Then we met and you can bet I knew from the first, you were my love,

and that's when the old gray cloudburst.

hey baby

I'm gonna tell you 'bout your lovin'

and your kissn' and your huggin'

and your sweet turtle-dovin' pretty baby.

I won't be satisfied til I hear 'em play,

"Here comes the bride."

Listen to me baby and I don't mean maybe.

Listen to my story,

it's terrifficly true.

I gotta find a way of telling you that I really go for you.

I hope you really believe me baby 'cause I certainly do.

'Cause you're thrillin' me, you're really,

really thrilling when you tell me that you probably got a kind of crush on me,

That moves me, grooves me.

How divine can one woman be?

Well little darlin',

you got me fallin'.

You got me goofy and gay.

I'm gonna get carried away.

Just think, you're gonna be mine someday.

Oh, let's spin a little,

park a little, stop a little,

spark a little,

live a little,

love a little,

maybe turtle-dove a little baby.

Every time you hold me so near,

nobody loves me like you, dear.

Let's stop a little, squeeze a little,

probably maybe tease a little,

try a little, sigh a little,

maybe have to cry a little bit,

'cause to tell you the truth,

I'm gonna love you and that's it.

'Cause I love you baby,

love you baby,

love you baby,

love you baby,

with all my heart.

Oooh, listen to me while I say I let

a lotta little ladies get away

Because I know,

I know pretty baby, I know,

I know, pretty baby,

I know you're the one, yes you're the one.

I knew when I met you what a break it was to get you.

We're goin' hoppin' (Hop)

we're goin' hoppin' today

where things are poppin' (Pop)

the Philadelphia way

we're gonna drop in (Drop)

on all the music they play

on the Bandstand (Bandstand)

We're goin' swingin' (Swing)

we're gonna swing in the crowd

and we'll be clingin' (Cling)

and floatin' high as a cloud

The phones are ringin' (Ring)

My mom and dad are so proud

I'm on Bandstand (Bandstand)

And I'll jump, and hey, I may even show 'em my handstand

because I'm on, because I'm on the American Bandstand

when we dance real slow I'll show all the guys in the grandstand

what a swinger I am, I am on American Bandstand

we're goin' hoppin

we're goin' hoppin today

where thinks are poppin

the Philadelphia way

we're gonna drop in

on all the music they play

on the Bandstand (Bandstand)

and now we're hoppin

and we'll be hppin all day

when thinks are poppin

the Philadelphia way

and you can drop in

on all the music they play

on the Bandstand


And we'll rock and roll and scroll on American

Lindy hop and slop, it's American

tune in, I'm on,

turn on, I'm in, I'm on



on the Bandstand
