Limbo Rock" is a popular song about limbo dancing written by Kal Mann (under the pseudonym Jon Sheldon) and Billy Strange. An instrumental version was first recorded by The Champs in 1961. The first vocal version was recorded in 1962 by Chubby Checker (on Parkway Records): it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks (held out by "Telstar" by The Tornados) and at number one on the Cash Box charts. The Chubby Checker recording also made it to number three on the R&B charts.

Every limbo boy and girl All around the limbo world Gonna do the limbo rock All around the limbo clock. Jack be limbo, Jack be quick Jack go under limbo stick All around the limbo clock Hey, let's do the limbo rock. Limbo lower now Limbo lower now How low can you go? First you spread your limbo feet Then you move to limbo beat Limbo ankle, limbo knee Bend back like a limbo tree. Jack be limbo, Jack be quick Jack go under limbo stick All around the limbo clock Hey, let's do the limbo rock
Covering a 1958 B-side by Hank Ballard & the Midnighters called "The Twist," Chubby Checker broke into the public consciousness in 1960, taking the song all the way to number one and igniting a dance craze in the process. Limbo Rock," for one, had more calypso in it in than the Cameo-Parkway version, while the later version collected here has a more pronounced reggae feel, although the tone of the song remains virtually the same.
