Etta James and Sugar Pie DeSanto – “In The Basement” (1966)

Oh, now tell me where can you party, child, all night long?
In the basement, down in the basement, yeah.
Oh where can you go when your money gets low?
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
And if a storm is taking place, you can jam and still be safe
In the basement, down in the basement, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Where can you dance to any music you choose?
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Oh, you got the comforts of home, a nightclub too.
In the basement, whoa down in the basement.
There’s no cover charge or fee and the food and drinks are free,
In the basement, down in the basement
Come on child, you can do it, you can do it, yeah
In the basement, that’s where it’s at (4x)
In the basement, in the basement, in the basement
That’s where its at
Where they don’t , where they don’t check you age at the door,
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Barracuda and ? til your feet get sore
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Do any dance you want to do, there’s no one under you
In the basement, I know it, you tell ’em oh-h-h-h I wanna go
In the basement, that’s where it’s at (4x)
