The Rubberband Man
The Spinners Lyrics


Hand me down my walkin' cane
Hand me down my hat
Hurry now and don't be late
'Cause we ain't got time to chat
You and me we're goin' out
To catch the latest sound
Guaranteed to blow your mind
So high you won't come down

Hey ya'll prepare yourself for the rubberband man
You've never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the rubberband starts to jam

Oh boy, this dude is outta sight!
Everything he does seems to come out right

Once I went to hear them play
At a club outside of town
I was so surprised
I was hypnotized
By the sound this cat put down
When I saw this short fat guy
Stretch a band between his toes
Hey, I laughed so hard
'Cause the man got down
When he finally reached his goal

Hey ya'll prepare yourself for the rubberband man
You've never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the rubberband starts to jam

Got that rubber band
Up on his toes
And then he wriggled it up
All around his nose

Guaranteed to blow your mind
Playin' all that music, yet keepin' time
Where in the world did he learn that, oh Lord?
Lord, help him get away

Hey ya'll prepare yourself for the rubberband man
You've never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband man, rubberband man
How much of this stuff do he think we can stand?
So much rhythm, grace, and debonair for one man
And then he had the nerve to wiggle his left toe
Went to his knee, got the feelin' in his head, y'all
Oh, come on baby

Hey ya'll prepare yourself for the rubberband man
You've never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband man starts to jam
Moving up and down 'cross the land
Got the people all in his wake
Everything probably seems outta place

Just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, rubberband man
Just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, rubberband man
Get down, oh, get down low

Hand me down my walkin' cane, hand me down my hat
Hurry now and don't be late 'cause we ain't got time to chat
You and me, we're goin' out to catch the latest sounds
Guaranteed to blow your mind so high, you won't come down, no

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You've never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You're bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Oh Lord, this dude is outta sight
Everything he does seems to come out right

When he finally reached his goal

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man

Got that rubber band up on his toes
And then he wriggled it up all around his nose

Guaranteed to blow your mind
Playin' all that music yet keepin' time
Where in the world did he learn that, oh Lord
Oh, help him get away

So much rhythm, grace and debonair for one man, Lord
And then he had the nerve to wiggle his left toe
To his knee got the feelin' in his head, y'all, ah, come on, baby

Hey, you all prepare yourself for the Rubberband Man
You've never heard a sound like the Rubberband Man
You're bound to lose control when the Rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband Man starts to jam
Movin' up and down across the land
Got people all in his ways
Everything about him seems outta place

Just move it, just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, Rubberband Man
Just move it, just move it, just move, move, move it, just
Rubberband, Rubberband Man
Get down, oh, get down, lover

All those dislikes were from people who weren't prepared for the rubber band man.

All those dislikes were from people who were looking for the rapper TI's version of The Rubberband Man. Lol.

Carter Sherline

@Anna Gonzalez both covers though, Cupid originally Sam Cook & Working My Way Back to You originally The Four Seasons.

Paul V. Kendall, J.D.

They can’t they weren’t warned!

Frederick Ralston

Indeed

Austyn Barber

@Omar Justin Smith I felt like it was a reference to a bass player. Particularly cello/ stand up bass. Just seems to make sense to me all things considered

@the metaphysical space cat from outerspace not man, do not use the perspective of men or daughters of them as we Are Glory Eye Am kNowN Truth, each of us is an independent universe with external interpretive organizim(note in the song, what RELATES ranking sensory components of formative Architecture Organiae, and allows Experiential Presence in External eXchange what should be Flowing in Direction of Correct Posture on the Mourning What Time Crashes
