BORN TO BOOGIE

WELL MY MAMA MET MY DADDY DOWN IN ALABAM
THEY TIED THE KNOTS SO HERE I AM
BORN ON THE BAYOU ON THE TEXAS LINE
UP IN LOUISIANA RAISED ON JAMBALAYA

NOW BEFORE I COULD WALK I HAD A GUITAR IN MY HAND
BY THE TIME I COULD TALK I HAD MY OWN BAND
I WENT ON THE ROAD WHEN I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD
WHEN I TURNED FIFTEEN I WAS STEALING THE SHOW
I HAD MONEY TO BURN AND THE GIRLS WERE PRETTY
DIDN'T TAKE ME LONG TO LEARN THAT I WAS BORN TO BOOGIE.

WHEN I WAS 18 I WENT TO HOLLYWOOD
I MET ELVIS AND MERLE AND JOHNNY B.GOODE
GOT MY GUITAR PAINTED AND SOME CALIFORNIA SUN
A RED CADILLAC HAD TOO MUCH FUN

NOW WE WERE PLAYING THEM HALLS AND JAMMING THERE
THEN WE'RE MOVING ON OVER TO MGM
THEY SAID THIS IS THE BOY WE BEEN TELLING YOU ABOUT
HE LIT A CIGAR AND HE STUCK HIS HANDS OUT.

HE SAID SON HAVE WE GOT A DEAL FOR YOU
I'M GONNA MAKE YOU A STAR GIVE YOU 50.000 TOO
I TOLD HIM MY MAMA DIDN T RAISE NO FOOL
I TAKE YOUR MONEY I MAKE YOUR MOVIE
I TELL YOU RIGHT NOW I WAS BORN TO BOOGIE

WELL MY NAME IS BOZEPHUS I DRINK WHISKEY BY THE GALLONS
I NEVER BACK DOWN AND I LOVE A GOOD CHALLENGE
WHAT I'M DOING NOW IS WHAT I DID BACK THEN
I LIKE TO GET DOWN TO ALL MY ROWDY FRIENDS.

NOW I CAN BE SWEET AND I CAN BE MEAN
I STILL GOT MY HAT AND I STILL WEAR MY JEANS
MY CHEVY'S CHROME AND MY GUITAR'S STEEL
IF YOU THINK I WON'T THEN BELIEVE ME I WILL
GET DOWN ON YOU BABY CAUSE I AIN'T NO ROOKIE
I WILL BOOGIE TO PARTY AND I WAS BORN TO BOOGIE
