  • 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-C
    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
    Wow, wow

    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 railroad 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

    Come on, come on
    Do the Loco-motion with me
    Ye-ye-ye-yeah

    Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    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

    (Come one)
    You gotta swing your hips, now
    (Come one)
    That's right (do the Loco-motion)
    You're doing fine!
    (Come one, do the Loco-motion)
    Come on, babe
    (Come one, do the Loco-motion)
    Hm-hm-hm, jump up
    (Come one)
    Jump back (do the Loco-motion)
    You're looking good
    (Come one, do the Loco-motion)
    Hm-hm-hm, jump up
    (Come one)
    Jump back (do the Loco-motion)
