Here we go loop de loop
Here we go loop de lie
Here we go loop de loop
All on a Saturday night

You put your right hand in
You take your right hand out
You give your hand a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about

Here we go loop de loop
Here we go loop de lie
Here we go loop de loop
All on a Saturday night

You put your left foot in
You take your left foot out
You give your foot a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about

Here we go loop de loop
Here we go loop de lie
Here we go loop de loop
All on a Saturday night

You put your right hip in
You take your right hip out
You give your right hip a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about

Here we go loop de loop
Here we go loop de lie
Here we go loop de loop
All on a Saturday night

You put your whole self in
You take your whole self out
You give yourself a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about


We believe "Loop de Loop" is the original version, but many sing it as "Looby Loo" instead.
