Skip to My Lou lyrics — €“ traditional American dance song

Skip to My Lou is a traditional song, dating back to America’s frontier period. Since musical instruments were frowned upon, the dancers had to create their own music by clapping and singing.

Couples would dance around a lone male who sang — €œlost my partner, what’ll I do. — € At the appropriate point in the lyrics, he would — €œsteal — € the partner of a dancing man as he sang — €œI’ll find another one prettier than you. — € The displaced man would take his place in the circle.

— €œLou — € is apparently a corruption of — €œloo, — € the Scottish word for love.Read More »Skip to My Lou lyrics

Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo —

I’m singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again
I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin’,
Singin’ in the rain
