    Song MeaningThe poem takes the form of a hortatory imperative command.

    "Do the Hustle," the poet-speaker commands us. And yet in his tone, and also in the light and playful melody we are led to understand implicitly that rather than being an onerous burden upon us, this very thing we've been commanded to do, this "Hustle" will in fact lighten our hearts and spirits.

    The second verse is similar. "Do the Hustle," we are again reminded.

    The third follows a familiar track as well, and by the fourth fifth and sixth repetitions, we find ourselves in new territory. The very repetition and our place in the schema has made the listener/reader into now an active participant. We ourselves, in singing along, are commanding OTHERS to participate in this hustleatory effort, thus ensuring the further propagation of the activity.
