Subject: Lyr Add: AT THE HOP (Danny & the Juniors, 1957
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 06 Oct 11 - 07:34 PM

AT THE HOP
John L. Madara / Arthur Singer / David White
As sung by Danny and the Juniors, 1957

INTRO: Bah (bah, bah, bah)
Bah (bah, bah, bah)
Bah (bah, bah, bah)
Bah (bah, bah, bah)
At the hop.

1. Well, you can rock it, you can roll it, do the stomp* and even stroll* it at the hop.
When the record starts spinnin' you chalypso* and you chicken* at the hop.
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop.

CHORUS: Let's go to the hop.
Let's go to the hop.
Let's go to the hop (oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop.
Come on, let's go to the hop.

2. Well you can swing it, you can groove it, you can really start to move it at the hop,
Where the jockey is the smoothest and the music is the coolest, at the hop.
All the cats and chicks gonna get their kicks at the hop.

Let's go!

CHORUS

Let's go!

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK, REPEAT VERSE 1, CHORUS, VERSE 2, CHORUS, AND INTRO.

[* Names of popular dances circa 1957.]

AT THE FLOP
As sung by Homer and Jethro

At the flop.
At the flop.

Ever'body wants to hop when they're full o' soda pop at the flop
Hit the floor by the score. Feet are sore, that's fer shore, at the flop.
If you trip the light fantastic, don't depend on cheap elastic at the flop.

Let's go to the flop. (4x)
There's a lot o' lollygaggin' an' a lot o' jitterbaggin' at the flop.

They're a-singin' an' a-pickin' there's a lot o' chicken-flickin' at the flop.
They're a-runnin' at the wall an' they're a-squallin' an' a-fallin' at the flop.
Now the party's getting' rough; ever'body's hittin' snuff at the flop.

Let's go to the flop. (4x)
Oh, they flip 'em an' they flop 'em but they never ever drop 'em at the flop.

Girls who weigh about a ton never have any fun at the flop.
If they eat a lot o' sweets they develop bigger seats at the flop.
Dig you now and plant you later, like a big ol' sweet potater at the flop.

Let's go to the flop. (4x)
Ever'body is a-groovin' 'cause they been a-scooter-poopin' at the flop.


[Jitterbaggin' I figure is just a comical alteration of jitterbugging. But what the heck is scooter-poopin'?]

I listened to the songs on Spotify and transcribed them myself. In the case of AT THE HOP, I also did a bit of research to get publication data and see how other people had transcribed the lyrics, but the final decision was mine, based on what I hear.

JIM - You are truly one of the "shinning stars in the Mud"...

PLEASE - a little more about your "discovery."

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

You HAVE a clue...most are lacking.

Could a freshman (19yo) university student follow your posting to its "primary source?"

Cough...expectorate...or the phlem might die with you.

Jim-

That parody, not to mention the original, is certainly an amazing cultural artifact.

Wonder if it would work as a shanty/chantey/chanty?
