"Birth of the Boogie" as written by Bill Haley, Bill Williamson and Johnny Grande....
Boogie, boogie woogie
The boogie-woogie-woogie beat
Down in Africa, many years ago
There lived a little fella named Zulu Joe
He took his tom-tom, a great big stick
And that was the birth of the boogie lick
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, the boogie-woogie-woogie beat
Then Joe got hip and he started to sing
The animals flipped and began to swing
Monkey, elephant, kangaroo
They all picked up on the boogie too
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, the boogie-woogie-woogie beat
Well, the animals a-boogied all over the place
The rabbit spit in the bulldog's face
Joe kept a-beatin' till the early morn'
And that's when the boogie-woogie was born
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, birth of the boogie
Birth of the boogie, the boogie-woogie-woogie beat
