Facts:
  • From Al's first album "Weird Al" Yankovic" (CapSuper)
  • Updated version of the one from his 1981 ep, and B-side of the TK "Another One Rides The Bus" (CapSuper)
  • While it doesn't make fun of a specific song, "Gotta Boogie" is musically a parody of Disco cliches (the female chorus, etc). (sav-man)
  • An original song by Weird Al with a sophomoric but hilarious play on words. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Gotta boogie
    Gotta boogie
    Gotta boogie
    Gotta boogie
    Gotta boogie (gotta boogie)
    Gotta boogie (gotta boogie)
    Gotta boogie (gotta boogie)
    Gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off

    Well, I went out to a party just the other night
    I was jammin' to the music, I was feelin' alright
    I was burning up the floor like a disco maniac
    When my woman said, "Baby, why's your hand behind your back?"

    Gotta boogie (gotta boogie)
    I said boogie (gotta boogie)
    I gotta boogie (gotta boogie)
    Gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off

    I can't pick it off (uh uh)
    I can't flick it off (uh uh)
    I sure ain't gonna lick it off (oh no)
    So I guess I'm gonna have to learn to live with it

    I gotta boogie (gotta boogie, uh huh, he's gotta boogie)
    I gotta boogie (gotta boogie, uh huh, he's gotta boogie)
    I gotta boogie (gotta boogie, uh huh, he's gotta boogie)
    Gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off

    (boogie)
    Gotta boogie
    (boogie)

    Hey, you wanna boogie? (No man, I don't wanna boogie)
    Wanna boogie? (Get that boogie out of my face)
    Do any of you wanna boogie? (No!)

    Gotta boogie on my finger
    Gotta boogie on my finger
    Gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off
    (Sonic SBL)
