heard this on a compilation of 70's one-hit wonders...

The Bertha Butt Boogie - Part 1
by The Jimmy Castor Bunch

bum-bum-bum-adum, buh-bum-bum-bump
The party was jumpin' when Bertha got off o' her stump,
The whistles were blowin' and everybody did the "Bump".
But all the time Bertha had been workin' on her goodie,
Now folks call it "The Bertha Butt Boogie".

When Bertha Butt did her goodie,
She started "The Bertha Butt Boogie".
No question.

When Bertha got movin' her hips were hummin' in the wind,
The ground started shakin' - no grass grew where she'd been!
The music was poppin', the crowd had formed a ring,
Her sisters yelled, "Boogie, Bertha, do your thing!".

Uh, for your information, Bertha had three sisters,
Betty Butt, Bella Butt and Bathsheba Butt.

When Bertha Butt did her goodie,
She started "The Bertha Butt Boogie".
I said no question.

Hey, Leroy, get away from that woman!
The boy'll never learn!
Uh-oh, here comes the Troglodyte!
Troglodyte: "Come here, sock it to me!"

Bertha stood back and yelled, "Betty, Bella, Bathsheba!"
And the Butt Sisters backed her up when she yelled, "I need ya!".
The Troglodyte, Leroy, Luther and the Butt Sisters all knew
That "The Bertha Butt Boogie" was now the thing to do.

When Bertha Butt did her goodie,
She started "The Bertha Butt Boogie".
No question.

Bertha: "I'll sock it ya, daddy!"
Troglodyte: "Me like, me like! Come here, woman, woman!"
Leroy: "Yo' mama, I'm calling you, man!"
Troglodyte: "Yeah - the Boogie!"

The Ran-dells -

The martian hop

Papa ooh mir mir papa ooh mir mir papa ooh mir mir papa ooh mir mir
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee
I got into my rocket ship to see the Martian Hop
I saw the planet shining red so there I made my stop
But as I opened up the door and climbed the ladder down
I saw the Martians on the floor a-dancin' to this sound
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee

I saw I was the first one there and so I was surprised
To see the Martians twist and stomp before my very eyes
They did the locomotion and the hully-gully too
I couldn't name a single dance the Martians couldn't do
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee

Now right around the stroke of twelve the dance had just begun
They earth kids parked their spaceship down on Mars to have some fun
And so I left my friends, the Martians, stomping on the ground
And even though I'm back on earth I still can hear this sound.
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee
(fade out while repeating "papa ooh mir mir"

I heard Ronnie Hawkins do it where his band just echoed "My Gal Is Red Hot"
Billi Lee Riley's band shouted "Your Gal Ain't Doodly-Squat.

Remionds me oF the Spinal Tap tune:

BIG BOTTOM

The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

I met her on Monday, twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
You know what I mean

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game is waiting there inside her tights, yeah

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family. [ Chorus ]
Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family.

In Trinidad, there was a family,
with much confusion as you will see.
There was a mama and a papa, and a boy who had grown,
who wanted to marry and have wife of his own.

He found him a girl who was suiting him nice.
He went to his papa to ask his advice.
The papa said, "Son, I've got to say no.
That girl is your sister, but your mama don't know."

Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family. [ Chorus ]
Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family.

The weeks went by and the summer came down,
and soon, the best cook in the island he found.
He went to his papa to name a date.
His papa shook his head and to him he did say,

"You can't marry this girl; I've got to say no.
That girl is your sister, but your mama don't know."

Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family. [ Chorus ]
Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family.

He went to his mama, he covered his head,
and told his mama what his papa had said.
The mama she laughed, she said, "Go man, go!
Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know!"

Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family. [ Chorus ]
Woe is me! Shame and scandal in me family.
