Lyrics THERE WAS A DAY,
THERE WAS A TIME,
THERE WAS A DAY
WHEN I USED TO DANCE.
THERE WAS A TIME
WHEN I USED TO PRANCE,
BUT DIG ME NOW, BABY.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT LATER,
DIG THE DANCE
I USED TO DO
THEY CALLED THE MASHED POTATO.
THERE WAS A DANCE
NOW DIG THIS,
THERE WAS A DANCE
THEY CALLED THE JERK.
EVERYBODY RELAX
AND WATCH ME WORK
IN MY HOMETOWN
WHERE I USED TO STAY.
THE NAME OF THE PLACE
IS AUGUSTA, G.A.
DOWN THERE
WE HAD A GOOD TIME,
WE DON'T TALK,
WE ALL GET TOGETHER,
ANY TYPE OF WEATHER,
AND WE DO THE CAMEL WALK.
LOOK-A-HERE
DIG THIS:
NOW THERE WAS A DANCE
THAT I USED TO DO,
THE NAME OF THE DANCE
THEY CALLED THE BOOGALOO.
I MAY NOT DO THE DANCE
AS WELL AS YOU,
BUT BABY,
YOU CAN BET
YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR
YOU'LL NEVER HEAR ME HOLLER,
I'LL DO THE BEST
THAT I CAN DO.
LOOK-A-HERE
FEELING GOOD.
THERE WAS A TIME,
SOMETIMES I DANCED,
THERE WAS A TIME,
SOMETIMES I DANCED,
SOMETIMES I CLOWNED.
BUT YOU CAN BET
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN
NOTHING YET,
UNTIL YOU SEE ME
DO THE JAMES BROWN.
