"House Rockin' Boogie" as written by and Burnett....
Good evening everybody
The Wolf is coming in town
You haven't never see The Wolf
Play that guitar Willie Johnson, til it's smoking
Look out piano man, whup that ivory there
's my friend
Look out, er, violin player, step on it
My friend

Look out Willie Steel, whup that drum, boy
You know I'm just out of California
I'm on my way to Chicago
People have never seen the wolf there
I'm in your town when I get there
If I tell you, believe what I say
Beat it boy

You know I've got a girl in California, boy
She really swell
Got long black curly hair
I wish I were there
With her tonight
Boy, California's a swell place
Wouldn't wanna live anywhere else
In America

Blow your top
Blow your top
Blow your top!

Just listen, peoples
At that music
That man on that piano
Is whupping that pearl
That guy on that guitar is Willie Johnson
Whupping just some guitar
Willie Steel's on the drum

Aaaaarh, look out there, violin man
Step on it

Aint that sweet
Now you just think to yourself
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Whup some ivory there, boy
Good evening, peoples
The Wolf is in your town
I know you wanna see me

Aint that sweet
Darlin', that's so sweet
I know you like sweet music, Darlin'
Just swing til you get satisfied
