"Locomotion" as written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King....
Everybody's doing a brand-new dance, now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with me
It's easier than learning your A-B-Cs
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips, now

Come on, baby
Jump up
Jump back
Well, now, I think you've got the knack
Oh, oh

Now that you can do it, let's make a chain, now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
A chug-a chug-a motion like a railway train, now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul

So, come on, come on
Do the Loco-motion with me
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on

Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion) (yeah)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)

There's never been a dance that's so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you're feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips, now
(Come on baby)
Jump up, mmm jump back
Well, I think you've got the knack
Oh, oh

Do the Loco-motion
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do the Loco-motion
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul

So, come on, come on
Do the Loco-motion
Come on, come on
Do the Loco-motion
Come on, come on
Do the Loco-motion with me
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on
The Loco-motion
Come on, come on

    General CommentHaha! It's about one of Kylie's little dance routines isn't it!? Haha...still, i suppose it's one of those dico pop dancey ones that always seems to be at weddings and 40th birthday parties. And it's very well-known and everyone knows it...it's just one of those songs.
