      Lyrics for Mary Chapin Carpenter - "Down At The Twist And Shout"

      Saturday night and the moon is out.
      I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
      find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
      when it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
      out in the middle of a big dance floor.
      When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more.
      Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight.

      And I never have wandered down to New Orleans,
      never have drifted down a bayou stream.
      But I heard that music on the radio,
      and I swore someday I was gonna go:
      down a highway 10 past Lafayett;
      there's a Baton Rouge.
      and I won't forget to send you a card with my regrets
      'cause I'm never gonna come back home.

      Saturday night and the moon is out.
      I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
      find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
      when it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
      out in the middle of a big dance floor.
      When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more.
      Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight.
      Hey!

      They gotta alligator stew and a crawfish pie,
      a gulf storm blowin' into town tonight.
      Livin' on the delta it's quite a show.
      They got hurricane parties ev'ry time it blows.
      But here up north it's a cold, cold rain,
      and there ain't no cure for my blues today;
      except when the paper says
      Beousoleil is a comin' into town.
      baby let's go down.

      It's Saturday night and the moon is out.
      I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
      find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
      when it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
      out in the middle of a big dance floor.
      When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more.
      Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight.

      Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring you sister too.
      They got lots of music and lots of room.
      When they play you a waltz form a nineteen ten,
      you're gonna fell a little bit young again.
      Well you learn to dance with you rockin' roll,
      you learn to swing with do-si-do.
      But you learn to love at the fais do
      do when you hear a little Jolie Blon.

      Saturday night and the moon is out.
      I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout,
      find a two-step partner and a cajun beat,
      when it lifts me up, I'm gonna find my feet
      out in the middle of a big dance floor.
      When I hear that fiddle, wanna beg for more.
      Wanna dance to a band from a Lousian' tonight.
      Whoo!
