Night Fo’ Last Lyrics By Shorty Long

    child you oughta been there night fo’ last
    seen sister shakin’ her tailfeather
    you oughta been there night fo’ last
    watching grandpa getting his thing together

    then grandpa headed onto the floor
    said hold my cane son and watch me go
    ’cause i’m feeling sixteen not sixtyfour
    and all of the hippies started screaming and screaming
    go grandpa go go grandpa go

    you oughta know that i’m comin’ easy
    wastin’ no time gettin’ busy
    doing the or little hucklebuck
    and for an old girl she really knew her stuff
    then somebody turned the lights down the low
    and said we got to lock all the doors
    and then up jumped doctor feelgood
    and he started to do a twist
    and said i ain’t never been in a joint like this

    ohh the cuckooclock started striking four
    the band said we’re sorry but it’s time to go
    somebody plugged the jukebox up in the floor
    oh then up jumps skinnyminny doin’ the shimmyshimmy
    out went daddy waving a piece of barbeque

    you oughta been there night fo’ last
    child you oughta been there night fo’ last
    night fo’ last
    skinnyminny was doin’ the shimmy child night fo’ last
    oh they was lettin’ their hair down night fo’ last
