(Baby) Hully Gully

Lyrics: Smith, Goldsmith
Music: Smith, Goldsmith

Played once by the Grateful Dead at a somewhat impromptu concert in Amsterdam in 1981.

There is a dance going round like an awful disease
Hully, hully gully
Well you shake your shoulders, child, and wiggle your knees
Hully, hully gully
There's a dance going around from coast to coast
Hully, hully gully
When you do the dance, try to dig it the most
Hully, hully gully
Mama hully gully, papa hully gully, baby hully gully too
Papa hully gully, sister hully gully, you can hully gully too

I went to a party now and what did they do
Hully, hully gully
Now everybody's doing it, child, now why ain't you
Hully, hully gully
Everybody's moving like they got the shakes (note 1)
Hully, hully gully
Just listen here brother, that is all that it takes
Hully, hully gully
Mama hully gully, papa hully gully, baby hully gully too
Papa hully gully, sister hully gully, you can hully gully too

Mama hully gully, papa hully gully, baby hully gully too
Papa hully gully, sister hully gully, you can hully gully too
A fragment was recorded by Jerry Garcia:
There is a dance going round like an awful disease
Hully, hully gully
Wiggle your shoulders, and ... your knees
Mama hully gully, papa hully gully
Notes
(1) Bob Weir repeats the second part of the first verse here, perhaps because he forgot the lines!
