Grand Funk Railroad - ''The Loco-Motion'' - 1974



"The Loco-Motion" is a 1962 pop song written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King. "The Loco-Motion" was originally written for Dee Dee Sharp, but Sharp turned the song down. The song is notable for appearing in the American Top 5 three times, each time in a different decade: in 1962 by the American pop singer Little Eva (U.S. No. 1); in 1974 by the American band Grand Funk Railroad (also U.S. No. 1).







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

So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips, now


Come on

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

And do the Loco-motion with me


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


So come on, come on and do the Loco-motion with me

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

So come on, come on and do the Loco-motion with me

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
