[keita] show me how to do like you

[aisha] if you say please

[keita] please

since age one keita knew he had the answer

and it was that someday he’d be a dancer

and with help from his sis

surely that boy would not miss

from being the baddest dancer in the whole neighborhood

late at night when he was supposed to be sleeping

you could hear the pitter patter of feet creeping

to where music would play

to his sister he would say

before his father said hey boy get right back in that bed

show me how to do like you

show me how to do it

show me how to do like you

show me how to do it

– can you rock can you rock

show me how to do like you

can you rock around the clock, can you rock

show me how to do it

– can you rock can you rock

show me how to do like you

can you rock around the clock, can you rock

once at school they put on a talent contest

to find out who could really boogy the best

but his mama said no

keita’s much too young to go

but his sister said please let him go so the world can see

when they saw him they said he must be crazy

look at him he ain’t nothing but a baby

but soon as he began

you knew the contest he would win

because everyone in the audience began to cheer

show me how to do like you

show me how to do it

show me how to do like you

show me how to do it

– can you rock can you rock

show me how to do like you

can you rock around the clock, can you rock

show me how to do it

– can you rock can you rock

show me how to do like you

can you rock around the clock, can you rock

show me how to do it

– can you rock can you rock

show me how to do like you

can you rock around the clock, can you rock

show me how to do it

[aisha] ooh, you done broke mama’s lamp
