You talk about your truckin' when your peckin' is new,
Well, here's a dance that you all should do:
You get 'way low down to the floor,
And if you peck once, you'll peck twice, you'll peck it some more.

You peck to the front, to the sides, to the back,
Well, look at old Jim, he's pecking on his back!
Peckin' to me is a lot of fun,
Well, you peck one, and I'll peck one, well, we'll all peck one!

It's the dance we all should do,
In the place of the Suzy-Q;
Well, come on folks, lend me your ears awhile,
And I'll guarantee you, your little tootsie-wootsies will sure run wild.

You peck to the east, and then you peck to the west,
Then you peck, peck, peck 'til you've pecked your best.
Well, then okay, well, a-hey, hey,
We'll peck up, we'll peck up, we'll peck up the floor. Yeah!
