Hi everybody
I'm Archie Bell of the Drells
From Houston, Texas
We don't only sing but we dance
Just as good as we walk

In Houston we just started a new dance
Called the Tighten Up
This is the music
We tighten up with

First tighten up on the drums
Come on now, drummer
I want you to tighten it up for me now
Oh yeah

Tighten up on that bass now
Tighten it up, ha, ha, yeah
Now let that guitar fall in, oh yeah
Tighten up on that organ now

Yeah, you do the tighten up, yeah, now
I said, if you can do it now
It sure would be tough
Now look here, come on now
Now make it mellow

Let's tighten it up now
Do the tighten up
Everybody can do it now
So get to it

We're gonna tighten up
Let's do the tighten up
You can do it now
So baby, get to it

Look to your left now
Look to your right
Everybody can do it
But don't you get too tight

Come on and tighten up
Let's tighten it up now
Let's tighten it up now
Tighten it up

Do the tighten up
Come and tighten it up
Tighten it up now

Come on now, Billy
Tighten it up, oh yeah
Sock it to me now
Tighten it up

Come on and tighten up that bass
Oh yeah, now look here
I want that guitar to fall in on there
Tighten it up now, oh yeah
Now tighten it up, organ, yeah
Now everybody tighten it up now

Now look here
We gonna make it mellow for you now
We gonna make it mellow now

Tighten it up, you can get it
Move to your left, move to your right
Tighten it up now
Everything will be outta sight

Come on and tighten it up
Tighten it up now
You can do it
