In-the-know guy: (Say, pal, do you know anything about the latest dance they got out now?)
Clueless guy: (No, I don't. What is the latest dance?)
In-the-know guy: The latest dance they got out now is the dance they call the skoodle-um-skoo. Maybe you gonna like it. Let's go)

Now I know a lady by the name of Sue
She'd like to know just what to do
(Now, step right over there, sweet mama)
I'm gonna tell you just what to do
I'm gonna tell you just before you go

You gotta skoodle-um-skoo
Oh baby, won't you skoodle-um-skoo
C'mon, mama, and skoodle-um-skoo
Skoodle-um, sloodle-um-hoo, skoodle-um-hoo
Now when you're out in Society
Don't forget to care for me, so you can
Skoodle-um-skoo, skoodle-um, skoodle-um-skoo

Oh, skoodle-um-skoo
I'd like to skoodle-um-skoo
C'mon, mama, and skoodle-um-skoo
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-hoo, skoodle-um-hoo
Now she's the woman, hard to beat
All you got to do is dance and stay on your feet, and you can
Skoodle-um-skoo, toodle-um, toodle-um-too

Now, skoodle-um-skoo
I'd like to skoodle-um-skoo
(It's wonderful. C'mon, baby, and let's) skoodle-um-skoo
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-skoo, skoodle-um-skoo
You ain't good-lookin', you don't dress cute
You've got to keep a papa for your personal use, you got to
Skoodle-um-skoo, skoodle-um, skoodle-um-stoo

Oh, skoodle-um-skoo
I'd like to skoodle-um-skoo
(It's wonderful. C'mon, baby) skoodle-um-too
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-too, skoodle-um-too
Now, January February and March, too
The wind come along, showed you just what to do, you had to
Skoodle-um-skoo, skoodle-um, skoodle-um-skoo

Now skoodle-um-skoo
Ah, baby, won't you skoodle-um-skoo
Now, mama, won't you skoodle-um-skoo
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-hoo, skoodle-um-hoo
Now a man needn't think he got a woman by hisself
A woman needn't think she got a man by herself, she got to
Skoodle-um-skoo, toodle-ooh, toodle-ooh-skoo

Oh, skoodle-um-skoo
(It's wonderful, c'mon, baby) Skoodle-um-skoo
(Let's go) Ah, skoodle-um-skoo
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-stoo, skoodle-um-too
Now it ain't but the one thing, grieve my mind
All these women and none of them's mine, I got to
Skoodle-um-skoo, toodle-um, toodle-um-too

Uh, skoodle-um-skoo
Baby, won't you skoodle-um-skoo
C'mon, mama, and skoodle-um-skoo
Toodle-um, toodle-um-too, toodle-um-too
Now, baby, baby, baby, you dance all night
(Now, baby, you know you haven't done nothing wrong. Now come on, let's do the skoo)
Skoodle-um, skoodle-um-too
