|Single by Boz Scaggs|
|from the album Silk Degrees|
|B-side||"We're All Alone"|
|Writer(s)||David Paich, Boz Scaggs|
Scaggs would recall: "'Lido [Shuffle]' was a song that I'd been banging around. I...took the idea of the shuffle [from] a song that Fats Domino did called 'The Fat Man' that had a kind of driving shuffle beat that I used to play on the piano, and I just started kind of singing along with it. Then I showed it to Paich and he helped me fill it out. It ended up being 'Lido Shuffle'."
