Robert Klein: Give me some blues!

[ the SNL Band plays some blue sounds behind Klein, as he repeatedly raises and stomps his right leg to the beat. He raises a harmonica and maintains a rhythm with the band before singing the solo. ]

Robert Klein: [ singing ]
"I can't stop my leg!
I can't stop my leg, babe!
I can't stop my leg!
I can't stop my leg, pretty babe."

[ harmonica ]

"Can you stop my leg?"

[ the band strikes a beat, as Klein stills his leg on the stage ]

"My leg stopped!
Woo-hoo, thank the Lord.
I want to thank the Lord for stoppin' my leg.
Woo-hoo, yeah!"

"There it goes again!
There, there it goes again!
There, there, there it goes
There it goes again..!"
