Story behind the song
While I was at North Texas State College (now NT University) the swing dance was called "the push" (West Coast Swing) and everyone was always trying out new spins, turns, and different dance steps. It was like a "one up man ship"----just trying to be the best and still stay within the look and beat of the whole dance. So, this is about a mythical dancer and his new routine.
Lyrics
Action Jackson My Friend, Jack, decided he needed some new Action. So, what’d he do, he made up a new Dance, and of course he nick-named it the Jackson. You can Name the improvised moves, During the close-up sexy Groove, And it was so much fun, Everyone called it the “Action Jackson”. What makes it the Best, Its anything you want it to be. And this new Action Jackson is the way to set things free No Rules to Abide, So, just Hang on for the Ride. Its got Freedom of Moves, Don’t you See. Swing her Out, Swing her In, Hold her Close, then the Action begins. Now you make up a Move, Then you give it a Name, Or I give you a Name and you make up a Move, Here’s an easy one, Slow Boat to China, Or Rock My Boat, Baby. Now Really, this Action Jackson is just like the regular Swing, except when you bring the girl up close, you keep her there and hold her tight. Then, Let the Waist or Pelvic area go wild and make whatever moves that might seem right. If you’re in Doubt, think of it as Sex With your Clothes On OUT OF SIGHT. It’s different every time, Its anything you want it to be. And this new Action Jackson is the way to set things free No Rules to Abide, So, just Hang on for the Ride. Its got Freedom of Moves, Don’t you See. Swing her Out, Swing her In, Hold her Close, then the Action begins. All of these close-up moves have some fun names, So experiment for yourself and I know you will find a good one. Until then, How about, Ride’em Cowboy, of course there are No Spurs Allowed. Now this Action Jackson gives a whole new meanin to Dancin. It’s not ten feet apart but up close and Personal for romancin. It’s kind of like takin that Mercedes for a Joy Ride, You know you cant afford it but it sure is nice to get the feel and check out the handlin. Know what I mean!!! Makin’ new friends while your’re dancin, is easy as can be. And this new Action Jackson is the way to set things free No Rules to Abide, So, just Hang on for the Ride. Its got Freedom of Moves, Don’t you See. Swing her on Out, Swing her on Back, Hold her real Close, then its the Action Attack. Hey, Have you tried the Peanut Butter and Jelly, Lovers Stickin’ together. How about Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who’s got the best Jackson of them All, The Merry Go Round, going up and down together. Or how about, Little Miss Muffit, sat on his Tuffit. But it was too hard to stay there. Ohh, Noooo.
