Lyrics:
Weeell,. they had to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',
A cat who was really hep, put down a step
A new gyration soon, all the kids were twistin',

It didn't take long before the grown-ups were trying it,
Who's who was buying it all over town,
You see them, a-squirming and a-worming and a-twistin' around,

It spread like a forest blaze, became a craze
That rocks the nation now, everybody's twistin'.

(musical interlude)

Well oh well oh well oh well, they had to have something new,
A dance to do for recreation so someone started twistin',

And a cat who was really hep, he put down a step
A new gyration soon, all the kids were twistin',

No, it didn't take long before the grown-ups were trying it,
Who's who was buying it all over town,

You'll see them, a-squirming and a-worming and a-twisting around
It spread like a forest blaze, became a craze
That rocks the nation now, everybody's twistin'.
There's a-hopping, and a slopping, and a floppin',
Sacroilliac's a popping, everybody's twistin'.  Bop!
