Lyrics
Shotgun shoot ’em ‘fore he run now
Do the jerk baby
Oh, oh, do the jerk now

Put on your high-heeled shoes
Yeah, we’re goin’ down town, we’re gonna play the blues
We’re gonna pick tomatoes, hey, we’re gonna mash potatoes, oh, oh

Shotgun, ah ah, shoot ’em ‘fore he run now
Oh, do the jerk baby
Well, well, do the jerk now

I said it’s twine time
I said it’s twine time
I mean it’s twine time
Twine time
Well now shotgun

Català – Escopeta
Escopeta, dispara-la abans que corri, ara
Balla el jerk, noi
Oh, oh, balla el jerk ara

Posa’t les sabates de taló alt
Sí, anem cap al centre de la ciutat, anem a tocar blues
Recollirem tomàquets, ei, aixafarem patates, oh, oh

Escopeta, ah ah, dispara-la abans que corri, ara
Oh, balla el jerk, noi
Bé, bé, balla el jerk ara

He dit que és hora d’entrellaçar-se
He dit que és hora d’entrellaçar-se
Vull dir que és hora d’entrellaçar-se
Hora d’entrellaçar-se
Bé, ara escopeta
