Songwriter Bunny Wailer Confirms ‘The Electric Slide’ IS About A … Vibrator!

*Well dang, who knew?!

Well, it’s something that singer Marcia Griffiths spoke on but strongly denied, but most folks who’ve heard “The Electric Slide” and got their groove on to, didn’t really know.

Yep, there had been rumors for years, but no one really knew until now because the man who wrote the song in the first place has finally confirmed the rumors.

Songwriter Neville Livingston aka Bunny Wailer is putting a rumor to rest. He confirms that the song – also known as “Electric Boogie” is indeed about a vibrator, according to Aazios:

According to a source close to Livingston, word of the question about the origins of the song reached him in Kingston, Jamaica where he currently resides and he put the rumors to rest. 

“I’m surprised it took people this long to figure out,” the source tells us he said.

It seems the 71-year-old Livingston wrote the ditty after a girlfriend told him she didn’t need him because she had a toy she nicknamed the “electric slide”

Oh my!

Lets examine the lyrics:

It’s electric!
You can’t see it (it’s electric!)
You gotta feel it (it’s electric!)
Ooh, it’s shakin’ (it’s electric!)
Jiggle-a-mesa-cara
She’s a pumpin’ like a matic
She’s a movin’ like electric
She sure got the boogie
You gotta know it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie!)
Now you can’t hold it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie!)
But you know it there,
Here, there and everywhere
I’ve got to move,
I’m going on a party ride
I’ve got to groove, groove, groove,
And from this music
I just can’t hide
Are you comin’ with me?
Come let me take you on a party ride
And I’ll teach you, teach you, teach you
I’ll teach you the electric slide
Some say it’s mystic
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
You can’t resist it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
You can’t do without it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
Jiggle-a-mesa-cara she’s a pumpin’ like a matic
She’s movin’ like electric
She sure got the boogie
Don’t want to lose it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
But you can’t choose it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
But you know it’s there,
Here, there and everywhere
I’ve got to move,
Come let me take you on a party ride
And I’ll teach you, teach you, teach you
I’ll teach you the electric slide
You can’t see it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
You gotta feel it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
Ooh, it’s shakin’
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie)
Jiggle-a-mesa-cara she’s a pumpin’ like a matic
She’s movin’ like electric
She sure got the boogie
You gotta know it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie!)
Now you can’t hold it
(It’s electric
Boogie woogie, woogie!)
But you know it’s there,
Here, there and everywhere
Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)
Ola ola eh, ola eh (don dela don deloh!)

If he’s not talking about a vibrator I don’t know what he’s talking about.  Are we still going to play this at every cookout, wedding, graduation and prom.  Yes.
