Lyrics[]

Dora: Look, everybody! Backpack's gonna sing a song! Locomotion Latino!

Backpack: Everybody's doin' a brand-new dance, now!

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now!

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: My little baby sister can do it with me

It's easier than learning your ABC's!

So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips, now

Come on, Boots!

Boots: I'm trying, Backpack! Really!

Backpack: Well, now, I think you've got the knack! Whoa-whoa! Now that you can do it, let's make a chain, now

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control

A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul!

Come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me!

Boots: Hey... Hey look everybody! I-I think I'm getting it!

Backpack: Almost, Boots! Keep trying!

Move around the floor in a Loco-motion

Boots: L-like this?

Chorus: Do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: Do it holding hands if you get the notion

Yeah, Boots. Like that!

Chorus: Do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: There's never been a dance that's so easy to do

It even makes you happy when you're feeling blue!

So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me!

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion!

Backpack: So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

Chorus: Come on amigos, do the Loco-motion

Backpack: So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

Boots: Wow!

Dora: Did Backpack do a great job?

Boots: Yeah!

Dora: ¡Buen trabajo, Backpack! Let's give her a hand!

(Crowd applauding)

Dora: And she taught Boots the Locomotion dance!

Boots: Yeah! I got it! Thanks for your help, Backpack!

Backpack: Good thinking, Boots! ¡Muy bien!
