[A9] 
[D7-alt] 
[G] (note A7 could be used instead of A9) 

[D7] I went to a dance with my sister Kate; 

[G] Everybody there thought she danced so great; 

[D7] I realised a thing or two, 

[G] When I got wise to something new: 

[D7] When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance, 

[G] And then I knew it was in her dance; 

[C6] All the  
[C#dim] boys are  
[G6] going  
[E7] wild 

Over  
[A9] sister  
[D7-alt] Katie's  
[G] style. 

[D7] I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate; 

[G] Shake it like a bowl of jelly on a plate. 

My  
[D7] mama wanted to know last night, 

How  
[G]  
[STOP] sister Kate could do it so nice, n o w… 

[D7] All the boys in the neighbourhood 

Knew  
[G] Katie could shimmy, and it’s mighty good 

Well  
[C6] I may be  
[C#dim] late but I’ll be  
[G6] up-to- 
[E7] date 

When I can  
[A9] shimmy like my  
[D7-alt] sister  
[G] Kate. 

O  
[E7] yeah,  
[A9] shake it like my  
[D7-alt] sister  
[G] Kate. 

Instrumental of first verse 

[D7] If I could shimmy like my Kate 

I’d  
[G] never stay home, stay out too late 

I’d  
[D7] get my stuff about high as a kite 

You  
[G]  
[STOP] know I do it for you every night, n o w… 

[D7] Now all the boys in the neighbourhood, 

Knew  
[G] Katie could shimmy and it’s mighty good 

Well  
[C6] I may be  
[C#dim] late but I’ll be  
[G6] up-to- 
[E7] date 

When I can  
[A9] shimmy like my  
[D7-alt] sister  
[G] Kate. 

O  
[E7] yeah,  
[A9] shake it like my  
[D7-alt] sister  
[G] Kate. 

[D7] I wish that I could do it like my brother Roy, 

Oh  
[G] god he's such a boba boy 

Mother  
[D7] was asking the other day 

Why  
[G] the rugby team look at him that way 

[D7] when he goes round Earls Court neighbourhood 

In  
[G] old Bromton Road he does them good 

I  
[C6] know it would  
[C#dim] fill my little  
[G6] heart with  
[E7] joy 

If I could  
[A9] do it like my  
[D7-alt] brother  
[G] Roy... 

Instrumental of first verse 

[D7] I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate; 

[G] Shake it like a bowl of jelly on a plate. 

My  
[D7] mama wanted to know last night, 

How

[G] Kate. 

O  
[E7]yeah,  
[A9] shake it like my  
[D7-alt] sister  
[G] Kate. 

(slowing) That’s  
[E7] right,  
[A9] shimmy……like my  
[D7-alt] sister….. 
[G] Kate.
