Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
Everybody's twisting, Greg!
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
We're all doing the Twist!
 
Well, we're gonna go up, then go down
Get back up and turn around
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
What's next, Greg? What's next?
 
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
Oh boy, that's hard!
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
Shaky shaky!
 
Well, we're gonna go up, then go down
Get back up and turn around
Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?
What's next, Greg? What's next?
 
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
Pointy, pointy, pointy!
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
I'm doing the Twist really fast, Greg!

Get back up and turn around
Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

á -> à Regular smile

montrer vos doigts -> pointer

á relever, et á baisser -> nous relever et nous baisser

faisons le Twist -> "faire le twist"' just doesn't work. "danse le twist" is the simplest equivalent I can think of.

secouer vos mains -> agiter les mains ("secouer" would be what you do to shake something off your hands, like water or a bit of sticky paper)

Shaky shaky! -> I bet it's about the hands, so rather "secouez-les" or something.

Pointy, pointy, pointy! -> same thing for the fingers

doing the Twist really fast -> "danse le twist à toute vitesse" or something.
At any rate, you'd want to use "vite" (the adverb) instead of "rapide" (the adjective). "rapidement" would sound odd here.
