“The Git Up” Lyrics

Right now
I just need you to get real loose
Get comfortable
Grab your loved ones or grab your love partner
And if you’re by yourself no worries
Just follow after me
Gon’ and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
To the left to the left now
To the right to the right
Now take your left hand and put it on your side
Gone roll your shoulders
Do the slip and slide
This next part’s my favorite part ’cause its time to shine
Gon’ and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (It’s simple, you can do it)
Slide to the left, slide to the right
Now cool down, have a good time
Slide to the left, slide to the right
Do the butterfly and have a good time
Round, round, round & round you go
It’s time to show out right now and take it to the floor
Gon’ and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whooooo Ouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (Woooo Whoooo Whooooouuu)
Take it down now, take it take it down now
Take it down now, take it take it down now
(To the right)
Bring it up now, bring it bring it up now
Bring it up now, bring it bring it up now
(To the front)
Take it down and crisscross
Bring it up now crisscross
(To the back)
Do whatever you like right here (get down)
Just have fun
Gon’ and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (Woooo Whoooo Whooooouuu)
That was not sooo bad that wa- dat was not so bad was it
That was not sooo bad that wa- dat was not so bad was it
That was not sooo bad that wa- dat was not so bad was it
That was not sooo bad that wa- dat was not so bad was it
Gon’ and do the 2 step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (Woooo Whoooo Whooooouuu)
