The Basic Song Lyrics

You want a dance that's easy to do,
then dig the one I'm hippin' you to,
I'm gonna teach you to fall in on what they are
-in' the "SLUEFOOT"

You make your right point to the north,
You make your left foot point to the south,
and then you stroll sort a westerly, slow and siestaly "SLUEFOOT!"

Don't be an odd ball, and don;t be a fig.
Try, why be shy?
After all It's even better if your feet's too big, and if you learn to dance it
just right, it should'nt take but hald of the night, It is the most
lack-a-dai-si-est,
I mean the craziest "SLUE-FOOT".
You want a "SLUE-FOOT".
