Lyrics IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.
NOW I HAD A GIRL
SO DOG-GONE THIN,
NO MEAT,
NO BONES,
SHE WAS JUST ALL SKIN.
ONE THING ABOUT HER
I CAN UNDERSTAND,
SHE WRAPS ALL AROUND ME
LIKE A RUBBER BAND.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.

IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.
YOU FIND SOME GIRLS
WHO ARE BIG AND FAT,
SOME FELLOWS
DON'T LIKE TO SEE THEM
LIKE THAT.
BUT I LIKE TO SEE 'EM
BIG AND TALL,
THE BIGGER THEY COME,
THE HARDER THEY FALL.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.

IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.
I GOT A LITTLE GIRL
WHO LIVES DOWN THE STREET,
IT AIN'T MUCH OF HER
BUT SHE'S MIGHTY SWEET.
WHEN SHE STARTS ROCKIN'
SHE DON'T WANT TO STOP,
IT MAKES A MAN
WANT TO BLOW HIS TOP.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION
MAKES YOUR DADDY
WANT TO ROCK.
IT AIN'T THE MEAT,
IT'S THE MOTION,
IT'S THE MOVEMENT
THAT GIVES IT
THE SOCK.
