Line Dancers: Watch the Best Lyric Video of All Time

November 15, 2013 1:40 PM ET

Your weekend plans have just been upgraded.

Thanks to singer Kounty Line, you can now spend Saturday and Sunday learning the line dance for his hot new song, "Big Thang 4 Big Girls."

Similar to the popular "Just Dance" video game, the "Big Thang 4 Big Girls (BT4BG)" clip stars silhouettes of instructors demonstrating the moves to the Go-go rhythms.

The big girl and skinny girl teachers take viewers through a fun, easy-to-follow routine as the lyrics offer further direction to "back it up," "twerk something," "put a hump in your back" and "wobble for me girl."

Signed to Sphinx Music Ent. by Lajuanna Burrell, the Mississippi-bred artist is targeting fans of popular line dance hits, DJ Casper's "Cha Cha Slide Pt. 1," V.I.C.'s "Wobble" and Cupid's "Cupid Shuffle."

"The line dance community is huge," a spokesperson for Kounty Line said in a statement. "In the aggregate, there's over 200 million impressions and eyeballs watching and participating in line dancing. … Kountry Line will bridge the world of line dance to mainstream America and tell the story of how popular and how massive the line dance community is."

In the last month, a number of line dance groups choreographed and videotaped their own routines to the song and posted on YouTube.

Now let me get to work. Let's see how quickly I can learn this.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
