When John Lee Hooker sang "I like the way you switch" in "Dimples" - what exactly did he mean? I can't find an answer either at Mudcat Cafe or on dictionaries of blues words.

I just sing it. Assumed it was a dance move.

It's a dance move where the girl wiggle her hips in a sexy way - like "swish".

There's a reference in another old R'nB song to a girl being told off for "switchin' in the kitchen" - but I can't just remember the song at the moment...

Thanks guys. I kind of assumed that might be the answer, but unless you know, how can you tell? As a church board member who enjoys the blues, its a bit embarrassing if you accidently sing something that turns out o be gross!
