Mess Around Lyrics

by Ray Charles

Ah you can talk about the pit, barbecue
The band was jumpin,' the people too
Ah mess around, they doin' the Mess Around
They doin' the mess around
Everybody doin' the mess around

Ah, everybody was juiced, you can, bet your soul
They did the boogie-woogie, with a sturdy roll
They mess around, they doin' the mess around
They doin' the mess around
Everybody doin' the mess around

Now ah, when I say stop don't you move a peg
When I say go just ah, shake your leg
And do the mess around, I declare do the mess around
Yeah do the mess around
Everybody's doin' the mess around

Now let me have it there boy
Now you got it boy
Yeah ah, mess around, go on mess around
Mess around, boy

Now this band's goin' to play from 9 to 1
Everybody here's gonna have some fun
Doin' the mess around
Ah, doin' the mess around
They doin' the mess around
Everybody doin' the mess around

Now you see that girl, with that diamond ring
She knows how to shake that thing
Mess around, I declare she can mess around
Ah, mess around
Everybody do the mess around
