Rheumatism Boogie - Moon Mullican

Rheumatism Boogie

Moon Mullican

(Louis Todd Innis - Moon Mullican, King 45-1198, 1953)

Well, my uncle Ebenezer my old aunt Jane
Heard the rheumatism boogie, nearly went insane
He forgot his rheumatism and his three day gout
Janie grabbed old Ebenezer and we heard him shout

The rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
Oh, the rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
The rheumatism boogie makes you feel like you're young again

You'll do the country shuffle and the Suzi Q
The jitterbug special, I'm a-tellin' you
It makes you start to shimmy and wanna shake
Your motor starts to runnin' on a down hill drag

Do the rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
Rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
The rheumatism boogie makes you feel like you're young again

I knew an old man, his name was uncle Ned
His rheumatism hurt him till he wished he was dead
The rheumatism misery made him feel so bad
He said it was the worst pain that he had ever had

He went to the doctor to ease his pain
The doc he told him, throw away your cane
About a week later, he went to see the doc
He said, I'm feelin' better 'cause I learned to rock

To the rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
Rheumatism boogie (do the boogie)
The rheumatism boogie makes you feel like you're young again
