If you see a faded sign at the side of the road that says
-------------------(C) Play Part 1, then continue with Part 2 15 miles to the... Love Shack!
(Part 2) Love Shack yeah yeah
I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway, lookin' for the love getaway

Headed for the love getaway, love getaway,

I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

Glitter on the mattress Glitter on the highway Glitter on the front porch Glitter on the hallway
The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together
Love Shack baby! Love Shack, that's where it's at!
Huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin', wearin' next to nothing Cause it's hot as an oven
The whole shack shimmies! The whole shack shimmies when everybody's Movin' around and around and around!
