lyrics

I ain't no king, I suppose
I don't sport no diamond ring
Though I may wear fancy clothes
My palace is on the top floor
Come knock on the door
And take your partner by the foot
Don't worry 'bout no dirty looks
Keep on havin' good times all 'round
I'd sooner bow down to B.B. King
I don't treat people low down
I'd rather just sit and grin
There's no malice in this heart of mine
Oh people please be kind
And take your partner by the foot
Don't worry, M'am, I ain't no crook
Keep on havin' good times all 'round

Out upon a blue dancefloor
We are bound by feet strong and fleet
Bewitched by the kitsch of the evening's sparkling dress
The night is at our behest
We are porcelain titans of fun
Each behind their back binds each hand
To the whistle and the crack of the band
Primitive intelligence firebrand
Of the freak-bop beat that will not stand
Still
And one and all we will
Take our partner by the foot

Saddle me up a bus, and I'll ride into town
Find me a guy named gus
And a woman with a flowing gown
We'll go down to the docks
Take off our shoes and socks
Oh don't put me in the stocks
Take your partner by the foot
Throw away that etiquette book
Keep on havin' good times all 'round
Keep on havin good times all 'round, 'round, 'round
Keep on havin' good times
Oh, one more time
Keep on havin' good times

about

Mad King Ludwig & the Mojo Co. Southampton, UK

An inventive 6-piece from Southampton. Sounds like James Brown & the Famous Flames in a hurricaine; feels like a velvet sofa hurtlin' through a jazz club.
