Lyrics

Everybody get on your feet
You make me nervous when you in your seat
Take off your shoes and pat your feet
We’re doin a dance that can’t be beat

We’re barefootin’
Yea we’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
Yea we’re barefootin’

Went to a party the other night
Long Tall Sally was out of sight
Threw way her wig, and her high sneakers too
Doin’ a dance without any shoes

She was barefootin’
She was barefootin’
She was barefootin’
She was barefootin’

Hey little girl with the red dress on
I bet you can barefoot all night long
Take off your shoes and throw ‘em away
Come back and get them another day

We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’

Little John Henry he said to Sue
If I was barefootin’ would you barefoot too
Sue told John, “I’m thirty two
I was barefootin ever since I was two”

They was barefootin’
They was barefootin’
They was barefootin”
Yea we’re barefootin’

We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’
We’re barefootin’

No sane person would wear shoes unless they have to
