Boomps A Daisy Lyrics

Hands, knees and
boomps - a - daisy!
I like a bustle that bends.
Hands, knees and
boomps - a - daisy!
What is a boomp between friends?
La, la, la, la, la!
Hands, knees oh don't be lazy.
Let's make the party a wow!
Now then hands, knees and boomps - a - daisy!
Turn to your partner and bow.
