    "Hey everybody gather round

    Listen to that bongo sound

    Grab the first one in your reach

    Now we're going to shake the beach

    Do the Clam, do the Clam

    Grab your barefoot baby by the hand

    Turn and tease, hug and squeeze

    Dig right in and do the Clam"

    Killer reflection (apologies to Elvis)
