You move it to the right if, it it takes all night.
[Earl:]
Now, baby, kinda slow with a whole lot of soul.
[Both:]
Don’t move it too fast, you make it last.
You know you scratch just like a monkey, yeah, you do, real, yeah.
You slide it to the limbo, yeah, how low can you go?
[Earl:]

[Both:]
You just grove it right here to the Harlem shuffle.
[Backup singers:]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, do the Harlem shuffle.

[Earl:]
Oh, do the Monkey Shine now.
