Song Lyrics

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?
Can you point your fingers and do 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?

Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
Well, we're gonna go up and go down
Get back up and turn around 
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
Now, we're gonna go up and go down
Get back up and turn around 
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
