Ubangi Stomp Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I rocked over italy and I rocked over spain
I rocked in memphis it was all the same
Till I rocked to africa and rolled off ship.
And seen them natives doing a odd looking skip
I parted the weeds and looked over the swamp
I seen them cats doing the ubangi stomp

Ubangi stomp with rock and roll
Beats anything that's ever been told
Ubangi stomp ubangi style
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild

Well, I looked up the chief and he invited me in
Said a heap big jam session 'bout to begin
He handed me a tom-tom I picked up the beat
That crazy thing sent shivers to my feet
Rocked and rolled and I skipped with a smile
Ubangi stomp ubangi style

Ubangi stomp with rock and roll
Beats anything that's ever been told
Ubangi stomp ubangi style
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild

Well, we rocked all night and part of the day
Had a good rocking time with the chief's daughter mae
I was making time and gettin' in the know
The captain said son we gotta go.
I said that's alright. you go on ahead
I'm gonna ubangi stomp until I roll over dead

Ubangi stomp with rock and roll
Beats anything that you ever told
Ubangi stomp ubangi style
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild
When the beat just drives a cool cat wild
