Music to Move You

  The Hokey Pokey Hip-Hop (Radio Mix) - Lyrics

You like to show me off, but you show me no respect

You’re so in love with glamour, could hit you with a hammer!

But glamour don’t matter when you come from Tennessee,

‘Cuz I’m a Hokey Pokey Girl—not a Trophy!

Here’s your first new move – It’s The Swing It!

Well, you swing it to the left, you swing it to the right

Do the Hokey Pokey and feel {clap} alright!

Here’s the traditional Hokey Pokey {RIGHT FOOT}.

Now get ready with your right foot!

You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out,

You put your right foot in, and you shake it all about!

You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around -

That’s what it’s all about! {clap}

Here’s your second new move – it’s The Push!

Oh, you never want to hear it when I’ve had a bad day.

I’m cryin’, sighin’, you’re pushin’ me away.

My love is here to stay…

but you’re pushin’, pushin’, pushin’ me away.

Pushin’, pushin’ me away.

Pushin’, pushin’ me away.

Here’s the traditional Hokey Pokey again.

Left foot next!

You put your left foot in,

You put your left foot out,

You put your left foot in,

and you shake it all about!

You do the Hokey Pokey

and you turn yourself around -

That’s what it’s all about! {clap}

Here’s the traditional Hokey Pokey again .

Right arm!

You put your right arm in,

You put your right arm out,

You put your right arm in,

and you shake it all about!

You do the Hokey Pokey

and you turn yourself around -

That’s what it’s all about! {clap}

Left arm!

You put your left arm in, you put your left arm out,

You put your left arm in, and you shake it all about!

You do the Hokey Pokey

and you turn yourself around -

That’s what it’s all about! {clap}

Freestyle

To the boy from New York city,

from the girl from Tennessee,

Scratch below the surface,

and here’s what you will find….

Love , love, love… (Love is not a crime)

Love, love, love… (It’s really quite sublime)

Love , love, love… (Love is not a crime)

Love, love, love… (It’s really quite sublime)

Oh, yeah, baby (not a crime),

Oh yeah (quite sublime)

Oh yeah, baby (not a crime)….Love!

Back to the traditional Hokey Pokey for one last chorus, except this time, put your hand over your HEART, and lean your whole torso in and out!

You put your heart in, you put your heart out,

You put your heart in, and you shake it all about!

You do the Hokey Pokey

and you turn yourself around -

That’s what it’s all about! {clap}

Freestyle

So when your lover gets to ya (oh yeah, uh huh),

And you’re feeling blasé

(what are you going to do?)

Now everybody throw your hands

up in the air and shake them!

Throw your hands up in the air…

and dance your cares away!

Back to the Swing It move. Repeat to the end.

Dance your cares away !

(You swing it to the left,

You swing it to the right,

Do the Hokey Pokey {clap}

All-right!)
