Fast goes fast
Slow goes slow
Alright now, do the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Now do the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo
Like that girl standing on the corner
Trying to get a ride to the other side
When way down underneath
All she had to do was move her pretty feet
And do the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Alright baby, do your Low Yo Yo with all your stuff
Now, baby, do your Low Yo Yo Stuff
Now, baby, it’s in your being
Whether you’re long, tall, short or skinny
Sometimes it’s rough
You mean to tell me it’s that Low Yo Yo Stuff?
Low Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo
Fast goes fast
Slow oes slow
Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Like that girl standing on the corner
Trying to get a ride to the other side
When way down underneath
All she had to do was move her pretty feet
And do the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
What if my girlfriend back home
Finds out what my fingers have been doing
On my guitar since I been gone?
Don’t anybody tell her,
I been doing the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Like any other fella
Away from home, all alone
Been doing that Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Ya, I been really carrying on!
Fast goes fast
Slow goes slow
Rich are rich and the po’ are po’
Everybody’s doing the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo
Everybody’s doing it
Deep down everybody knows they should
Do the Low Yo Yo Yo Yo

(1972)
