Peppermint

Jim Adams has challenged us to spice it up  this week on Song Lyric Sunday.  Terms like Cinnamon/Mint/Parsley/Pepper/Rosemary/Sage/Salt/Thyme were noted in the challenge, and I have gone with peppermint.  The song written by Joey Dee and Henry Glover,  and released by Joey Dee and the Starliters in 1961.  It became a favourite during the Twist dance era.  It has had several covers and is just fun.

Lyrics

Well, gonna do a dance and it goes like this

The name of the dance is the peppermint twist

In a night like this – a peppermint twist

Round and round, up and down

Round and round, up and down

Around and around, and a up and down and a

One, two, three kick, one, two, three go

Well, meet me baby on a Boni’bay Street

The dance where the peppermint twist is me

We want to learn to do this – the peppermint twist

It’s allright, all night

It’s allright (allright, allright, allright)

It’s okay all day

It’s okay (okay, okay, okay)

You want to learn to do this – the peppermint twist

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You want to learn to do this – the peppermint twist

Come on everybody, lay your hands

Ah, you looking good

I’m gonna sing my song and it won’t take long

I’m gonna do the twist and it goes like this

Round and round, up and down

Round and round, up and down

Around and around, and a up and down and a

One, two, three kick, one, two, three go

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I want to learn to do this – the peppermint twist

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I want to learn to do this – the peppermint twist…
