  • Right now
    I just need you to get real loose
    Get comfortable
    Grab your loved ones or grab your love partner
    And if you're by yourself no worries
    Just follow after me

    Gon' and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
    Grab your sweetheart and spin out with 'em
    Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
    Take it to the left now and dip with it
    Gon' throw down, take a sip with it
    Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo) let's have some fun

    To the left, to the left now (to the left, to the left)
    To the right to the right (to the right)
    Now take your left hand and put it on your side (put it on your side)
    Go on, roll your shoulders (roll your shoulders)
    Do the slip and slide (do the slip and slide)
    This next part's my favorite part 'cause its time to shine

    Gon' and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
    Grab your sweetheart and spin out with 'em
    Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
    Take it to the left now and dip with it
    Gon' throw down, take a sip with it
    Now lean back put your hips in it (It's simple, you can do it)

    Slide to the left, slide to the right
    Now cool down, have a good time
    Slide to the left, slide to the right
    Do the butterfly and have a good time
    'Round, 'round, 'round & 'round you go
    It's time to show out right now and take it to the floor

    Gon' and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
    Grab your sweetheart and spin out with 'em
    Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
    Take it to the left now and dip with it
    Gon' throw down, take a sip with it
    Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

    (To the left)
    Take it down now, take it, take it down now
    Take it down now, take it, take it down now
    (To the right)
    Bring it up now, bring it, bring it up now
    Bring it up now, bring it, bring it up now
    (To the front)
    Take it down and crisscross
    Bring it up now crisscross
    (To the back)
    Do whatever you like right here (get down)
    Just have fun

    Gon' and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
    Grab your sweetheart and spin out with 'em
    Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
    Take it to the left now and dip with it
    Gon' throw down, take a sip with it
    Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

    That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
    That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
    That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
    That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?

    Gon' and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
    Grab your sweetheart and spin out with 'em
    Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
    Take it to the left now and dip with it
    Gon' throw down, take a sip with it
    Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo) Writer/s: Bennie Julius Amey III

  • Gary from California I like the story about the song, but why is it spelled “git” instead of “get”? I don’t suggest it’s your responsibility to teach the world, but every song or billboard that has a common word misspelled makes it that much harder to teach proper English to children. Maybe consider that? Maybe not?
