The Rubberband Man (LP Version)

The Rubberband Man (LP Version)

The Spinners

Hand me down my walkin' cane
Hand me down my hat
Hurry now and don't be late
'Cause we ain't got time to chat.
You and me we're goin' out
To catch the latest sounds
Guaranteed to blow your mind
So high you won't come down.

[Chorus]
Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the Rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam.

Oh, Lord this dude is outta sight
Everything he does
seems to come out right.

Once I went to hear them play
At a club outside of town
I was so surprised, I was hypnotized
By the sound this cat's puttin' down.
When this short fat guy
Stretched a band between his toes
Hey, I laughed so hard 'cause the man got down
When he finally reached his goal.

[Chorus]

Got that rubberband
Up on his toes
Then he wriggled it up
All around his nose.

(Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo)
Guaranteed to blow your mind
(Do doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo)
Playin' all that music, yet keepin' time
(Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo)
Where in the world did he learn that, oh, Lord
(Doo doo doo doo doo)
Lord, help him get away.

[Chorus]

Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Rubberband man, Rubberband man
How much of this stuff do he think we can stand
So much rhythm, grace and debonair from one man, Lord
And then he had the nerve to wiggle his left toe
To his knee, got the feelin' in his head, y'all
Ah, come on baby.

[Chorus]

Rubberband man starts to jam
Movin' up and down across the land
Got people all in his ways
Everything about him seems out of place.
Just a movin', just a movin', just a move-move-movin'
Just a Rubberband, Rubberband man
Just a movin', just a movin',just a move-move-movin'
Just a Rubberband, Rubberband man.

Get down
Oh, get down lover
Uh-huh.
