The Locomotion
Little Eva Lyrics


Everybody's doing a brand-new dance, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with me
It's easier than learning your a-b-c's
So come on, come on, do the loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips, now

Come on, baby
Jump up
Jump back
Well, now, I think you've got the knack
Wow, wow

Now that you can do it, let's make a chain, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul

Come on, come on
Do the loco-motion with me

Ye-ye-ye-yeah
Move around the floor in a loco-motion
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

There's never been a dance that's so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you're feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the loco-motion with me

(Come on) you gotta swing your hips, now
(Come on) that's right (do the loco-motion)
You're doing fine (come on, do the loco-motion)
Come on, babe (come on, do the loco-motion) hm-hm-hm
Jump up (come on) jump back (do the loco-motion)
You're looking good (come on, do the loco-motion) hm-hm-hm
Jump up (come on) jump back (do the loco-motion) hm-hm-hm yeah yeah yeah

The Loco-motion
Little Eva

Everybody's doin' a brand new dance now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it
If you give it a chance now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with ease
It's easier than learning your a b c's
So come on, come on,
Do the loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
Come on baby, jump up, hmmm jump back
Oh well I think you got the knack

Now that you can do it
Let's make a chain now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
Chug-a chug-a motion like a railway train now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy now don't lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul
So come on, come on,
Do the loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips now
Come on, come on,
Do the loco-motion with me
Yeah

Move around the floor in a loco-motion
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you got the notion
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
There's never been a dance that's so easy to do
It even makes you happy
When you're feeling blue
So come on come on do the loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips now

Come on, come on,
Do the loco-motion with me
Yeah
Come on, come on,
Do the loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips now

In 1962 when this song came out, I was an apprentice and I went down to a cafe on the industrial estate where our factory was. As I went into the cafe 'The locomotion' was playing on the jukebox and about 20 young girls in their companies factory jackets were doing the locomotion. Every body was smiling in the cafe, it is such a vivid happy memory that comes to me every time I hear this great old song.
