The Locomotion – Música

“The Loco-Motion” is a 1962 pop song written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King. “The Loco-Motion” was originally written for Dee Dee Sharp, but Sharp turned the song down. The song is notable for appearing in the American Top 5 three times, each time in a different decade: in 1962 by the American pop singer Little Eva (U.S. No. 1); in 1974 by the American band Grand Funk Railroad (U.S. No. 1); and finally in 1988 by the Australian singer Kylie Minogue (U.S. No. 3).
The song is a popular and enduring example of the dance-song genre: much of the lyrics are devoted to a description of the dance itself, usually performed as a type of line dance. However, the song came before the dance.
“The Loco-Motion” was also the second song to reach No. 1 by two different musical acts in America. The earlier song to do this was “Go Away Little Girl”, also written by Goffin and King. It is one of only nine songs to achieve this feat.

Little Eva – Loco-motion(1962)

Everybody’s doing a brand new dance now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

My little baby sister can do it with ease
It’s easier than learning your ABCs
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
Come on, baby, jump up, jump back
Well, I think you got the knack, whoa, whoa

Now that you can do it let’s make a chain now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
A chuga chuga motion like a railroad train now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

Do it nice and easy now, don’t loose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lotta soul
Come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you do get the notion
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
That’s right, you’re doing fine
Come on, baby
Mmm, jump up, jump back
You’re looking cool
Mmm, jump up, jump back
