Wist je dat? Schrijver Hank Ballard had "The Twist" reeds als B-kant op diens single "Teardrops On Your Letter" uit 1959 staan, toen Chubby Checker werd gevraagd om het liedje op te nemen. In 1960 schoot Chubby's versie van "The Twist" naar de top van de Amerikaanse hitlijsten, waar het nummer zowel in september 1960 als in januari 1962 op nummer 1 terechtkwam.

Aaah, we're back!

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Take me by my little hand and go like this

The party was packed, I'm talkin' back to back
There was a rapper that was rappin' to a beat that was wack
They was going through the motions out on the dance floor
An' when the rapper was done they wasn't yellin' encore

The people were tired of the same old groove
They wanted something def, something new and improved
Something easy to do but hard to resist
I got something for y'all, what do you call it? the twist!

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chubby Checker and the Fat Boys, we're doin' the twist
Take us by our little hands and go like this

We, we, we broke into the booth and the record stacks
Came up with the twist and we were scratchin' the track
People started jammin' hard to the funky sound
Did the twist down and up, then up and down

Then I heard somebody yell: "Yo, Chubby's here"
The people took a little pause just to stop and stare
He said: "I'll show you people how to Twist with style
'Cause I've been doin' the twist for a long long while"

Oh, you should see Prince Markie Dee
Check out that Kool Rock is rockin' like me
Here comes B-Beat Box
Come on, do it Buffy!

Com', com', com', come on, baby
Com', com', com', com', come on, baby
Do, do, do, do, do the twist
Do, do, do, do, do the twist

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chub and the Fat Boys, we're doin' the twist
Take the world by the hand and do the twist

Chubby took my sister down to the dance floor
Did the twist so def, the crowd yelled for more
So I pulled it with my mussle, did my flow with my coil
And when Buff did the Limbo we was rockin' the world

Come on, baby, let's do the twist
Chubby Checker and the Fat Boys, we're doin' the twist
Take the world by the hand and go like this

The West Coast and on the East Coast
And in the South and the North
And the whole world!

(Ha ha ha ha) Come on, baby
(Twist to the left, Twist to the right) Let's do the twist
(Twist up and down, Twist all night)
Chubby Checker (Come on, come on) and the Fat Boys
(Come on, come on, come on, come on) We're doin' the twist
(Come on, come on, come on) take us by our little hands
And go like this

Oh yeah, and do the twist
Yeah, just like me
Oooh, yeah, and do the twist
Oh yeah
