(L. Berkner)


Guitar, snaps and vocals: L. Berkner

Floor tom drum & baritone sax: Joe Ruddick

This song was a strange marriage of my sitting in a restaurant flicking at those sugar packets and my friend's son Christopher teaching me to say "doity doit doit." Later, a student told me that we should add a part about a drum. Who knew?

Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar

Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar

To the right, to the left, and up and down

 

Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


To the right to the left and up and down


To the right and to the left and up and down

 

Play your drums until the mornin’ comes, play your drums

Play your drums until the mornin’ comes, play your drums

 

Oh doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar

Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


To the right to the left and up and down


To the right and to the left and up and down

 

Play your violin tuck it underneath your chin, play your violin

Play your violin underneath your chin, play your violin

 

Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


To the right to the left and up and down


To the right and to the left and up and down

 

Play your piano everywhere you go, play your piano

Play your piano everywhere you go, play your piano

 

Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


To the right to the left and up and down


To the right and to the left and up and down

 

Play your saxophone and you’ll never be alone

Play your saxophone


Play your saxophone and you’ll never be alone

Play your saxophone

 

Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar

Doity doit doit shakin’ it down


Doity doit doit shakin’ down the sugar


To the right to the left and up and down


To the right and to the left and up and down

To the right and to the left and up and down
