Originally appeared on Lick My Decals Off, Baby

Oh that buggy boogie woogie sweeps me off my feet
What this world needs is a good retreat
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
‘n a good two dollar broom
One day I was sweepin’ down by the wall
I bumped a mama spider ‘n the babies begin’ to fall
Off o’ my broom
Now I gotta keep on sweepin’ ‘n sweepin’
‘fore they fill the room
Now that buggy boogie woogie sweeps me off my feet
I gotta keep on sweepin’ ‘n sweepin’
Seems like I could keep on sweepin’ ‘n sweepin’
‘n there’s still too many feet
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
‘n a good two dollar broom
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
‘n a good two dollar broom
Seems like I could keep on sweepin’ ‘n sweepin’
‘n there’s still too many feet
Well the way I must be sweepin’
Must be with too many feet
Ah, ‘n I’ll still keep on sweeping ‘n sweepin’
‘n there’s still too many feet

(1970)
