The “Soft Shoulder Shuffle” by The Hook Vents

Everybody's Dancing

While I may appear stuffy, curmudgeony, and all kinds of fuddy duddy I do like to have fun! So when I heard the “Soft Shoulder Shuffle” by the Hook Vents I knew that I had to share it. You can check out their song here: The Hook Vents¬† This band is composed of a few Ivy League fanatics that definitely get it. I hope that it makes your day like it made mine!

Lyrics to the “Soft Shoulder Shuffle”

Verse 1
This here’s the soft shoulder shuffle, I do it all the timeSoft Shoulder Shuffle
The rags I wear may be old, but they’re looking mighty fine

Button down collar with a button in back, when the ladies pass by
they know I’ve really got the knack

Strides pressed and clean and barely touchin’ my shoes
With that ivy league look you know you just can’t lose

Verse 2
Herringbone tweed with a 3/2 roll,
Come along baby now let’s take a little stroll

If it’s cool outside don’t you worry one bit
Just take my mohair sweater and cuddle up in it

All the cats on the street know there ain’t no other way
Gather round boys, here’s what I have to say

Chorus
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
(3-2 roll)
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
(It’s good for the soul)
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
Oh yeah
You do the soft shoulder shuffle
(Come on now!)
You learn the soft shoulder shuffle and you always be feeling fine

Verse 3
Now all you sloppy dressing silly lookin’ men,
Take a lesson from me cause I’ll say it once again

You need a flannel suit and a slim knit tie
A hopsack blazer and now you’re really gettin’ by

It’s a stubborn look, just won’t go out of style,
If you follow my advice, it’s sure to make you smile

Chorus
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
(Soft shoulder shuffle!)
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
Oh yeah
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
(Herringbone Tweed!)
Do the soft shoulder shuffle
(All that you need!)
You do the soft shoulder shuffle and you always be feeling fine

    Makes sense, I didn’t think the athens Varsity was old enough to be in that picture.

I would like to hear from you
