BIRTH OF THE BOOGIE
(Bill Haley - Billy Williamson)
BILL HALEY AND HIS COMETS (Decca 29418, 1955)

Boogie, boogie woogie
The boogie-woogie-woogie beat
Down in Africa, many years ago
There lived a little fella named Zulu Joe
He put his thumbs on 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
