Ubangi Stomp - Warren Smith

Ubangi Stomp

Warren Smith

(Charles Underwood, Sun 250, 1956)

Well I rocked over Italy and I rocked over Spain
I rocked in Memphis, it was all the same
Well, I rocked through Afrika and rolled of the ship
And seen them natives doin' an odd lookin' skip
I parted the weeds and looked over the swamp
Seen them cats doin' the Ubangi-stomp
Ubangi-stomp with the rock and roll
Beats anything that you've ever been told
Ubangi-stomp, Ubangi-style
When it hits, it drives a cool cat wild

Well I looked up the chief, he invited me in
He said, a heep big jam session's 'bout to begin
He handed me a tom-tom, I picked up that beat
That crazy thing sent shivers to my feet
I rocked and I rolled and I skipped with a smile
I done the Ubangi-stomp, Ubangi-style

Well we rocked all night and part of the day
Had a good rockin' time with the chief's daughter May
I was makin' good time and a-gettin' to know
Then the captain said son, we gotta go
I said that's alright, you go right ahead
I'm gonna Ubangi-stomp 'till I roll over dead
