If I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate

If I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate

If I could shimmy like my sister Kate
Shake it like jelly on a plate
My mama wanted to know last night
How sister Kate could do it oh so nice
Now, all the boys in the neighborhood
Knew Kate could shimmy, and it's mighty good
I may be late but I'll be up to date
When I can shimmy like my sister Kate.
I mean, shake it like my sister Kate.

Now if I could shake it like my Kate,
Never stay home, stay home too late
I get my stuff about as high as a kite
You know I do it for you every night.
Now, all the boys in the neighborhood
Knew Kate could shimmy, and it's mighty good
I know am late but I'll be up to date
When I can shimmy like my sister Kate.
I mean, shake it like my sister Kate.

Well I've got the heebies, I mean the jeebies
Talking about, I got the heebie-jeebies
Hey, every girl and boy
I get hip with a little bit of joy
Hey don't you know it, don't you feel good
Come on down, someone'll teach you
Come on  and do that dance
They call the heebie-jeebie dance
Sweet mama, papa's got the heebie-jeebie dance

Come with me, don't ask no questions
The stuff is good, it ain't gonna hurt ya
Don't be so shy and don't act so dense
I know where you can get it for fifteen cents
Right up the alley, down the line
You got the nickel and I got the dime
We'll have a good time and that ain't all
Around the corner at the Hole In The Wall
Yeah, at the Hole In The Wall

Now goodbye booze, I'm through with you
Whoa goodbye booze, I'm through with you
Last night I told my wife
I wanna stay high the rest of my life
So goodbye booze, I'm through with you, yeah, yeah, momma
So goodbye booze, I'm through with you

   [spoken] Just gimme some of that good brown rice
