Chiller Dillers



This Chilly Willy from 1967, which illustrates the age old tension between rock & roll, authority, and shameless commerce, has emerged as Twins A&B's top pick. Doin' the mukluk bop ...

CHILLY WILLY MUKLUK BOP

I got a gal, she’s an Eskimo
Way up north, where the cold winds blow
Lives in a house made of ice and snow
But is she cold? Oh no no no.

CHORUS
Shuffle on the tundra
Slip and slide and hop
Twist and jerk in rhythm
Do the mukluk bop!

I take her out for a dog sled ride
I holler mush! Sit by her side
We cuddle up, temperatures low
But is she cold? Oh, no no no.

We dance all night
That’s six months long
She’s dressed up in a big sarong
And a big smile, not much I know
But is she cold? Oh, no no no.

CHORUS
Shuffle on the tundra
Slip and slide and hop
Twist and jerk in rhythm
Do the mukluk bop!

Life is a ball with an Eskimo
Dance until dark when the lights are low
Doin’ the bop when it’s five below
But is she cold? Oh, no no no.

CHORUS
Shuffle on the tundra
Slip and slide and hop
Twist and jerk in rhythm
Do the mukluk bop!

I am so happy you did this. The song is genius, and I've thought about transcribing it, but the obsession never extended quite that far.

Thank you, thank you. I always wanted to cover this song in my band. It's such a childhood relic. You are awesome!

Texas Songwriter Townes Van Zandt based his song "Two girls" on the Chilly Willy Mukluk Bop...
