Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: Down at the Twist and Shout
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]



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

Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight



Well 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 some day I was gonna go

Down Highway 10 past Lafayette

To 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

Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight



They got a alligator stew and a crawfish pie

A gulf storm blowin' into town tonight

Livin on the delta's quite a show

They got hurricane parties every time it blows

And here up north it's a cold cold rain

And there ain't no cure for my blues today

Except when the paper says: Beausoleil is coming into town

Baby let's go down



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

Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight



Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring your sister too

They got lots of music and lots of room

When they play you a waltz from 1910

You gonna feel a little bit young again

Well you learned to dance with your rock'n'roll

You learned to swing with a do-si-do

But you learn to love at the fais-so-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

Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight
