Elevator Toe Jam

lyrics

I saw mama dancing with the refrigerator door to Fats Domino
She said
1, 2,
1, 2, 3,
1, 2, 3, 4
Here we go
She said come on, won't you join in?
Run and tell Uncle Sam you don't wanna fight no more
It's the Elevator Toe Jam
do a little new dance and slide across the kitchen floor

The feeling in your soul
They call it rock and roll
The only thing you know that'll never go away

I've done seen a lot of things and people never learn anything
Not until it's knocking there on their door
I've done made a few friends
As humanist as humans get
I don't really need anymore
When we don't wanna think about
How the world's been down and out
When we don't really wanna feel anymore
We hit the Elevator Toe Jam
Do a little new dance and slide across the kitchen floor

The feeling in our souls
We call it rock and roll
The only thing we know that'll never go away

I saw mama dancing with the refrigerator door to Fats Domino
She said
1, 2
1, 2, 3
1, 2, 3, 4
Here we go
Come on wont you join in
Run and tell Uncle Sam
Where he can stick his little war
It's the Elevator Toe Jam
Do a little old dance and slide across the kitchen floor
