Chicken Skin Shake

Back to all the words

Pops has had too much coffee
He’s pacing a hole in the floor
Mom is, um, paranoid
She’s checking the locks on all the doors
It’s not that she doesn’t want anybody busting in
She doesn’t want us getting out
It’s a quarantine, honey
Stomp, and shimmy, shake, and shout

Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Strut around in a great big circle
Your legs have got to quake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake

We ate everything
We had up there on the shelf
Every cracker, every crumb
We shoved them in our mouth
We ate everything 
From off this gravy train
Now we’re calling for some delivery
It’s the veggie lo mein

Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Strut around in a great big circle
Your legs have got to quake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake

Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Strut around in a great big circle
Your legs have got to quake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake

Come on children
We’re gonna dance it all night
Step it, step it, step it, step it
You gotta step it right
Spin around, spin around, spin around, spin around
Spin around like a top
It ain’t over till
The fat lady stop
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them arms
Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle them bones
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
Dancing in the living room
The chicken skin shake
