Willie And The Hand Jive
Johnny Otis Lyrics

I know a cat named Way-Out Willie
He got a cool little chick named Rockin' Billie
Do you walk and stroll with Susie Q
And do that crazy hand jive too?

Papa told Willie "you'll ruin my home
You and that hand jive has got to go"
Willie said "papa, don't put me down
Been doin' that hand jive all over town"

Hand jive, hand jive
Hand jive, doin' that crazy hand jive

Mama, mama, look at uncle Joe, look at him
He's doin' that hand jive with sister Flo
Even gave baby sister a dime, hey, hey
Said "do that hand jive one more time"

Well, a doctor and a lawyer and a indian chief
They all dig that crazy beat
Way-Out Willie gave them all a treat, yeah
When he did the hand jive with his feet

Hand jive, hand jive
Hand jive, doin' that crazy hand jive, hey, hey
Come on, sugar, yeah!

Well, Willie and Billie got married last fall
They had a little Willie Junior and that ain't all
You know that baby got greatness and it's plain to see, hey, hey
Doin' that hand jive on T.V., come on

Hand jive, hand jive
(Why don't you) hand jive, doin' that crazy hand jive

Hey, hey, well
Yeah, yeah

Me too. I was gardening and picked up a garden slug and immediately thought of this song




Tommy Williams came to shawshank in 1965 on a two year stretch for b&e. That's breaking and entering to you. Cops caught him stealing tvs out the back of a jc penny's. Young punk, mister rock and roll. Cocky as hell. We liked him immediately.

@camonterey87 Yeah? What the hell you know about it, Capone?


The Black K-Night Perhaps it’s time you tried a new profession...
