Josh and Billy's song. Are you brave enough to try to sing it along?

Down down baby, down down the roller coaster. 
Sweet sweet baby, sweet sweet don't let me go. 
shimmy shimmy coco pop, 
shimmy shimmy rock, 
shimmy shimmy coco pop, 
shimmy shimmy rock I met a girlfriend- a triscuit, she said a triscuit-
a biscuit, ice cream soda pop vanilla on the top oooo Shalida, 
walking down the street, ten times a week I meant it.

I'm cool. I'm hot. 
Sock you in the stomach three more times.
