Lyrics
I've been wacky - all my life
Ask my peeps - ask my ex-wife
Things just sound different to me
So I break rules of harmony

A five-one turn-around extends the form
When twelve bars is the norm
Feel a beat - so snappy
Come-on let's get wacky!

Start tappin' with your toes
Or your heel - no one knows
Feel the groove and synchopathion
This is a music education

A five-one turn-around extends the form
When twelve bars is the norm
Feel a beat - so snappy
Come-on let's get wacky!

Now these chords are simple enough
Played with an edge they sound real tough
Lots of 7ths and substitutions
They're a real Blues institution

A five-one turn-around extends the form
When twelve bars is the norm
Feel a beat - so snappy
Come-on let's get wacky!

A five-one turn-around extends the form
When twelve bars is the norm
Feel a beat - so snappy
Come-on let's get wacky!

Come-one now let's get wacky!
Wacky, wacky, wacky
