Lyrics:
{Orchestra opens} and Frank speaks: "Not now, Moose!  I'll tell ya when!"

Here's a dance you should know
When the lights are down low
Grab your baby, then go

        Do the Hucklebuck (do the Hucklebuck)
        Do the Hucklebuck (do the Hucklebuck)
        If ya don't know how to do it
        Boy, you're out of luck (boy, you're out of luck)

        Push your partner out (push your partner out)
        Then you hunch your back (then you hunch your back)
        Start a little movement in your sacroiliac (sacroiliac)
        Wiggle like a snake (wiggle like a snake)
        Waddle like a duck (waddle like a duck)
        That's the way you do it when you do the Hucklebuck

(Here's a dance you should know)
(When the lights are down low)
(Grab your baby, then go)

{Frank speaks} "Yeah, Dad! Right now!!"

{instrumental featuring hot sax solo}

Here's a dance you should know
When the lights are down low
Grab your baby, then go


{Frank and backups}     Do the Hucklebuck
                                Do the Hucklebuck
                                If ya don't know how to do it
                                Boy, you're out of luck

                                Push your partner out
                                Then you hunch your back
                                Start a little movement in your sacroiliac

{Frank only}            Wiggle like a snake
                                Waddle like a duck
{Frank and backups}     That's the way you do it when you do the Hucklebuck
