Song Three – Boogaloo Water

Standin’ by the water doin’ the boogaloo dance

Time came rolling in – we didn’t stand a chance

Water’s standin’ over – my heart and my place

Time came rollin’ in playin’ the boogaloo base.

 

Do the boogaloo yahoo yeha!

Fiddle, squeeze box, harmonica, mandolin, base (Doing the boogaloo)

 

Water washed over my beans and my corn

Boogaloo dancin’ where I was raised ‘n born

Boogaloo dancin’ where old folks are restin’

Time came rollin’ in playin’ wild mandolin

 

Do the boogaloo yahoo yeha!

Fiddle, squeeze box, harmonica, mandolin, base (Doing the boogaloo)

 

It’s broken all the sluices an’ is headed down below

Bruin’ wild boogaloos, reapin’ what we sow.

Scales of boogie justice put us all in the riddle

Time came rollin’ in playin’ harmonica and fiddle

 

Do the boogaloo yahoo yeha!

Fiddle, squeeze box, harmonica, mandolin, base (Doing the boogaloo)

 

Seems the best we folk can do is do boogaloo dancin’

‘N join the water flow. There ain’t no second chancin’

‘N join the water flow learnin’ river’s ol’ romance

Time came rollin’ in livin’ the boogaloo dance

 

Do the boogaloo yahoo yeha!

Fiddle, squeeze box, harmonica, mandolin, base (Doing the boogaloo)
