​Better Boot That Thing

This song is by Bessie Tucker and appears on the compilation album Bessie Tucker (1928-1929) (2005).

There's a little dance, just in town
It must be easy 'cause I've got it down
They call it "Boot That Thing", man, Boot that Thing
Now, you better stay at home 'n' learn how to Boot that Thing

A little red rooster, a big fat hen
Had a fight this mornin', sayin', "We ain't no kin
We oughta Boot that Thing, Hey, Boot that Thing
Now, you better stay at home 'n' learn how to Boot that Thing"

The dog and the cat are no good friends
The dog don't like 'cause the cat won't grin
"You wanna Boot that Thing, Man, Boot that Thing
Now, you better stay at home 'n' learn how to Boot that Thing"

Old Aunt Dinah, sick in the bed
She sent for the doctor and the doctor said
"You've gotta Boot that Thing, Oh, Boot that Thing
Now, you'd better stay at home 'n' learn how to Boot that Thing"

(Oh, Boot that Thing)

You wanna make a man - you love smile
Shimmy half-an-hour, stop, and rest a while
Then Boot that Thing, Oh, Boot that Thing
Now, you'd better stay at home 'n' learn how to Boot that Thing
