Shake Your Tailfeather (Solving All the Crimes Together)

First draft of the closing song. Note that the original Blues Brothers version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rN5V-6yCbpg) has a shorter ending - we can play around with it and add more verses/choruses/bridges very easily. Needs a bit more work, but this is roughly what we're going for.
Well I heard about the fellow you've been dancin' with, all over the neighbourhood 
So why didn't you ask me baby, or didn't you think I could? 
Well I know that the boogaloo is outta sight but the shingaling, she is playing tonight 
 
But if that were you and me out there baby? 
I would've shown you how to do it right,
do it right, uh-huh
do it right,
do it right, do it right, do it right 

 
 
ahhhhhhh

Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby 
Here we go loop de loop 
Shake it out baby 
Here we go loop de la 

Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather 

Ahhhhhhhhhhh

Alright 
Do the twist 
Do the fly 
Do the swim 
And do the bird 
Well do the duck 
Do the monkey 
Watootsie 
And the, what about the food? 
Do the mashed potato 
What about the boogaloo? 
The boney maroney 
Come on and do the twist 

Ahhhhhhh

Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby 
Here we go loop de loop 
Shake it out baby 
Here we go loop de la 

Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather 
Come on, come on baby, come on, yeah come on babe 


Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby 
Here we go loop de loop 
Shake it out baby 
Here we go loop de la 
Well the murder started early and it happened quick, just like Sherlock said it would.
Somebody stole a lightbulb - and hid it away real good.
So then Wattson went and sealed up all the doors real tight, Sherlock thought he'd catch the killer that night. 
But it took a certain crime solving lady 
To solve the case and get the answer right.
Get it right, uh-huh
Get it right,
Get it right, get it right, get it right 

ahhhhhhh

Fix it, sleuth it, solve it, stop it, save it baby!
Carmen and Sherlock Ohms
Solvin' crime baby 
Sherlock Ohms, Carmen too!

And now these two are solving all the crimes together -
Bad guys will give these two no trouble whatsoever -
Carmen and Sherlock Ohms will solve your case whenever -
you'll see that these two sleuths are gonna work together -

Ahhhhhhhhhhh

*Music loops* (Bows go here)







Ahhhhhhh

Fix it, sleuth it, solve it, stop it, save it baby!
Carmen and Sherlock Ohms
Solvin’ crime baby 
Sherlock Ohms, Carmen too!

And now, that Jack and Jill are gonna be together -
they're gonna take the reins of the Brigade's endeavour
The light will change the world into something better
This city's gonna be lit up with light forever -

Fix it, sleuth it, solve it, stop it, save it baby 
(repeat until end)
