ZZ Top Rocks ’80 Rockaplast With “Tube Snake Boogie” And It’s Contagious! | Society Of Rock Videos

 

Texan Beach Boys

Talk about a funky, infectious song that you can’t help but tap your shoes and bob your head along! Encoring Rockaplast in 1980, ZZ Top plays “Tube Snake Boogie” and gets the crowd wild with excitement and energy!

“She do the tube snake boogie. Well now boogie little baby, boogie woogie all night long….”

With his deep raspy vocals, Billy Gibbons is on fire in this short but sweet hit about a girl that really knows how to surf and dance. Tube Snake was an original term for a surfboard back in the day, so Billy just rolled with the punches all the way from Texas.

Interesting Fact: The icon car that appeared in their videos and on the album cover of the same name is known as The Eliminator. It’s a 1933 Ford that Billy Gibbons had made into a Hot Rod, and it proved so popular that he had another one built just like it to go on tour. 

We dare you to not get on your feet and twist to this contagious and fun beat. We love watching early ZZ with short beards and big dreams- these men really conquered the world with their iconic southern blues rock and we love them for it.

+ Tube Snake Boogie Lyrics +

I got a girl she lives cross town,
She’s the one that really gets down.
When she boogie,
She do the tube snake boogie.
Well now boogie little baby,
Boogie woogie all night long.

I got a girl she lives on the block,
She kinda funky with her pink and black socks.
She likes to boogie,
She do the tube snake boogie.
Well now boogie woogie baby,
Boogie woogie all night long.

I got a girl, she lives on the hill.
She won’t do it but her sister will,
When she boogie,
She do the tube snake boogie.
Well now boogie little baby,
Boogie woogie all night long.
Blow your top blow your top blow your top.
