This fun and lively rhythm and blues song from the 1950s written by Johnny Otis and made famous by Cliff Richard and the Shadows, and later Eric Clapton, is arranged for a cappella SATB choir by Fiona Caldarevic. The 'hand jive' refers to a dance you do with your hands, as seen here:, and the choir is encouraged to do this for part of performance of this song.

The baritone part keeps the Bo-Diddley rhythm going all the way through.  The tenor part carries the melody most of the time, and the soprano/alto parts interact with various effects. During the choruses everyone sings together.  

This arrangement suits a community choir or high school choir who are up for a fun song.
