Cameo Word Up

Cameo Word Up

Yo, pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you, so tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
‘Cause they’re about to throw down and you’ll know just what to do

Wave your hands in the air like you don’t care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby, tell me what’s the word

Word up, everybody say
When you hear the call, you’ve got to get it underway
Word up, it’s the code word
No matter where you say it, you’ll know that you’ll be heard now

All you sucker DJ’s who think you’re fly
There’s got to be a reason and we know the reason why
You try to put on those airs and act real cool
But ya got to realize that you’re acting like fools

If there’s music, we can use it, we need to dance
We don’t have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me, mamma
Come on baby, tell me what’s the word

Word up, everybody say
When you hear the call, you’ve got to get it underway

Low
Dial ‘L’ for Low
Low
[Incomprehensible]

Do your dance, do your dance
[Incomprehensible]
Do your dance, do do do do your dance, do your dance
Check it, baby

Do do do, do your dance, do your dance

Say like that
Say like that
[Incomprehensible]
Every body is gonna [Incomprehensible]

C’mon, all you people say

Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” was written by Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler. The song was recorded in January 1946 by Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five. It topped the Rhythm and Blues charts for 18 weeks from August 1946, a record only equalled by one other hit, “The Honeydripper.” The record was one of Jordan’s biggest ever hits with both black and white audiences, peaking at number seven on the national chart  and provided an important link between blues and country music, foreshadowing the development of “rock and roll” a few years later.  Although “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” is now seen as epitomising the style known as jump blues, it was written by white songwriters whose background was in country and western music. The song is credited to Darling, Horton and Gabler. Denver Darling (1909–1981) was a “hillbilly” guitarist and songwriter,

Louis Jordan – Choo Choo Ch’Boogie Lyrics

Heading for the station with a pack on my back,

I’m tired of transportation in the back of a hack
I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
I hear the whistle blowing, see the smoke from the stack
Pal around with democratic fellas named Mac
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

You reach your destination and alas and alack
You need some compensation to get back in the black
You take a morning paper from the top of the stack
And read the situation from the front to the back
The only job that’s open needs a man with a knack
Put me right back in the rack, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

I’m gonna settle down by the railroad track
To live a life of Riley in a beat down shack
When I hear the whistle I can peep through the crack
And see the train rollin’ when it’s ballin’ the Jack
For I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Take me right back to the track, Jack

“The Rubberband Man”

Hand me down my walkin’ cane, hand me down my hat
Hurry now and don’t be late ’cause we ain’t got time to chat
You and me, we’re goin’ out to catch the latest sounds
Guaranteed to blow your mind so high, you won’t come down, no

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You’ve never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You’re bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Oh Lord, this dude is outta sight
Everything he does seems to come out right

Once I went to hear them play at a club outside of town
I was so surprised, I was hypnotized by the sound this cats put down
When I saw this short fat guy stretch a band between his toes
Hey, I laughed so hard ’cause the man got down
When he finally reached his goal

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You’ve never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You’re bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Got that rubber band up on his toes
And then he wriggled it up all around his nose

Guaranteed to blow your mind
Playin’ all that music yet keepin’ time
Where in the world did he learn that, oh Lord
Oh, help him get away

Hey, y’all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You’ve never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You’re bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband Man, Rubberband Man
How much of this stuff do he think we can stand?
So much rhythm, grace and debonair for one man, Lord
And then he had the nerve to wiggle his left toe
To his knee got the feelin’ in his head, y’all, ah, come on, baby

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You’ve never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You’re bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband Man starts to jam
Movin’ up and down across the land
Got people all in his ways
Everything about him seems outta place

Just move it, just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, Rubberband Man
Just move it, just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, Rubberband Man
Get down, oh, get down, lover
