from The NOLA Treblemakers: Back To One! (December 6th 2023) (2:50)
I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I wanna holler but the joints too small
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

Call some other's baby that ain't all
I wanna kiss her but she's way too tall
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leaving 'cuz I'm taking too long
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leaving 'cuz I'm taking too long
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu
