  • It's electric!
    You can't see it (it's electric!)
    You gotta feel it (it's electric!)
    Ooh, it's shakin' (it's electric!)
    Jiggle-a-mesa-cara
    She's a pumpin' like a matic
    She's a movin' like electric
    She sure got the boogie

    You gotta know it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie!)
    Now you can't hold it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie!)
    But you know it there,
    Here, there and everywhere

    I've got to move,
    I'm going on a party ride
    I've got to groove, groove, groove,
    And from this music
    I just can't hide

    Are you comin' with me?
    Come let me take you on a party ride
    And I'll teach you, teach you, teach you
    I'll teach you the electric slide

    Some say it's mystic
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    You can't resist it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    You can't do without it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    Jiggle-a-mesa-cara she's a pumpin' like a matic
    She's movin' like electric
    She sure got the boogie

    Don't want to lose it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    But you can't choose it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    But you know it's there,
    Here, there and everywhere

    I've got to move,
    Come let me take you on a party ride
    And I'll teach you, teach you, teach you
    I'll teach you the electric slide

    (Boogie woogie, woogie)

    You can't see it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    You gotta feel it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    Ooh, it's shakin'
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie)
    Jiggle-a-mesa-cara she's a pumpin' like a matic
    She's movin' like electric
    She sure got the boogie

    You gotta know it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie!)
    Now you can't hold it
    (It's electric
    Boogie woogie, woogie!)
    But you know it's there,
    Here, there and everywhere

    Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
    Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
    Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
    Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
    Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!) Writer/s: Neville Livingston
