Shake a Tail Feather

from The Blues Brothers

by Ray Charles

Directors:     Ella Grossberg, Jill Turman

Band sings and kids “listen” with hand to ear.

"Well I heard about the fella you’ve been

     dancing with all over the neighborhood

So why didn’t you ask me baby?

Or didn’t you think I could?”

 

Music ramps up and kids begin to sing / dance.

 

Well I know that the boogaloo is outa sight

But the shing-a-ling’s the thing tonight

Would it happen to me and you baby?

I wanna show you how to do it right…

 

Do it right. Uh huh. 

Do it right. Do it right. Do it right. Do it right.

UHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

 

Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it,

     shake it baby!

Here we go loop di loo!

Shake it up baby!

Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather

Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather

Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather

Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it,

     shake it baby!

Here we go loop di loo!

Shake it up baby!

Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather

Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather
