Lyrics

English

All right everybody, let's all get ready to point our fingers, and we'll do the twist! Here we go!

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
(Anthony: Everybody's twisting, Greg)
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
(Anthony: We're all doing the twist!)
Well, we're gonna go up and go down
Get back up and turn around
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Anthony: What's next, Greg? What's next?

Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
(Murray: Oh, boy, that's hard!)
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
(Murray: Shaky, shaky)
Now, we're gonna go up and go down
Get back up and turn around
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?

Anthony: What's next, Greg? What's next?

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
(Jeff: Pointy, pointy, pointy!)
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
(Anthony: I'm doing the twist really fast, Greg!)
Now, we're gonna go up and go down
Get back up and turn around
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
