    When I can shimmy like my sister Kate, I mean, shimmy like my sister Kate. 2. Thought if I want to be up to date, I had to shimmy like Sister Kate. Although I tried, 'twas all in vain, But Sister Kate could not be blamed. She made me dance till I got sore feet. I will be glad when it's all complete. Tried so hard to imitate, To shimmy like my. I can do it, yeah, just like my sister kate now. Shimmy, shimmy all night long now, Shimmy, shimmy the whole day through now, Shimmy, shimmy the whole night too, I can shimmy, yeah, whoa! Come on! Whoa! Shitty! Yea, just a one more time now, come on! Shimmy, shimmy, early in the mornin' now.

    When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance, And then I knew it was in her dance; All the boys are going wild Over sister Katie's style. Oh, I wish I could I shimmy like my sister Kate; She shimmies like a jelly on a plate. My mama wanted to know last night, What makes the boys think Kate's so nice.
