FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Old Folks Boogie’ Little Feat (1977)

Little Feat is an American rock band formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Lowell George and keyboardist Bill Payne in 1969 in Los Angeles. George disbanded the group because of creative differences shortly before his death in 1979. Surviving members re-formed Little Feat in 1987 and the band has remained active to the present.

“Old Folks Boogie”

Off Our Rockers, Actin’ Crazy
With the Right Medication We Won’t Be Lazy
Doin’ the Old Folks Boogie
Down On the Farm
Wheelchairs, They Was Locked Arm in Arm
Paired Off Pacemakers With Matchin’ Alarms
Gives Us Jus’ One More Chance
To Spin One More Yarn

And You Know That You’re Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can’t Fill
Doin’ the Old Folks Boogie
And Boogie We Will
’cause to Us the Thought’s As Good As a Thrill

Back At the Home,
No Time Is Your Own,
Facillities There, They’re All Out On Loan
The Bank Forclose, and Your Bankruptcy Shows
And Your Credit Creeps to An All-time Low
So You Know, That You’re Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can’t Fill

Try and Get a Rise From An Atrophied Muscle,
And the Nerves in Your Thigh Just Quivers and Fizzles
So You Know, That You’re Over the Hill
When Your Mind Makes a Promise That Your Body Can’t Fill
