"Down At The Twist And Shout" as written by and Mary Chapin Carpenter....
Saturday night and the moon is out
I gonna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
Find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
When it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight

And I never have wandered down to New Orleans,
Never have drifted down a bayou stream
But I heard that music on the radio,
And I swore someday I was gonna go
Down a highway 10 past Lafayett
There's a Baton Rouge and I won't forget to send you a card with my regrets
'Cause I'm never gonna come back home

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat,
When it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight
Hey

They gotta alligator stew and a crawfish pie,
A gulf storm blowin' into town tonight
Livin' on the delta it's quite a show
They got hurricane parties ev'ry time it blows?
But here up north it's a cold, cold rain,
And there ain't no cure for my blues today
Except when the paper says Beousoleil is a comin' into town
Baby let's go down

It's Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
Find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
When it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight

Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring you sister too
They got lots of music and lots of room
When they play you a waltz form a nineteen ten,
You're gonna fell a little bit young again
Well you learn to dance with you rockin' roll,
You learn to swing with do-si-do
But you learn to love at the fais so do?
When you hear a little Jolie Blon

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
Find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
When it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight
Hey, sure
