"Poorboy Shuffle" as written by and Steve/davies Ripley....
Workin' man tired of workin' workin' till he's dead
Got to crawl a crooked mile just to get a step ahead
Banker got the money farmer put it in the ground
Banker goin' uptown farmer goin' down

It's a do si do and tip of the hat
One step forward and two steps back
Great gosh a mighty we're doin' the Poor Boy Shuffle

It's an age old dance ain't nothin' new
Damned if you don't damned if you do
Left side right side upside down
Do the hokey pokey turn yourself around

Do si do and tip of the hat...

Sometimes you just got to take a chance
Strike a pose take a stance
And get off your butt and dance

One step two step three step four
Do a boogie woogie in the middle of the floor
Keep on dancin' doin' the Poor Boy Shuffle

Taxman Taxman knockin' at the door
Gimme all you got to give then gimme gimme a little more
It's a bad boogaloo it's the ultimate hustle
It's a dance marathon it's the Poor Boy Shuffle

Do si do and tip of the hat...
Sometimes you just got to take a chance...
Do si do and tip of the hat...
Do si do and tip of the hat...

You got to keep on keep on keep on
You got to keep on keep on keep on
You got to keep on dancin' doin' the Poor Boy Shuffle
