  • Mister
    Your eyes are full of hesitation
    Sure makes me wonder
    If you know what you're looking for
    Baby
    I wanna keep my reputation
    I'm a sensation
    You try me once, you'll beg for more

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    But I need a certain song
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie
    All night long
    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    If you stay, you can't go wrong
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie, all night long

    No, sir
    I don't feel very much like talking
    No, neither walking
    You wanna know if I can dance
    Yes, sir, already told you in the first verse
    And in the chorus
    But I will give you one more chance

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    But I need a certain song
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie
    All night long
    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    If you stay, you can't go wrong
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie, all night long

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    If you stay, you can't go wrong
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie, all night long

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    But I need a certain song
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie
    All night long
    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    If you stay, you can't go wrong
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie, all night long

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    But I need a certain song
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie
    All night long
    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    If you stay, you can't go wrong
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie, all night long

    Yes, sir, I can boogie
    But I need a certain song
    I can boogie, boogie-boogie
    All night long
    Yes, sir, I can boogie

  • Paul Osman from Liverpool, EnglandThis song is a total rip off of Don't Leave Me This Way. The breathed intro is a direct copy of Harold Melvin and Thelma Houston. It probably wasn't released in the USA because anyone with half a musical ear could spot the rip off. Gamble and Huff should have sued Distal and Soha for composing credits and royalties.
  • Marie from TutburyCadbury used this song in 2015 for an advert as part of their #FreeTheJoy campaign and I think it was very fitting!
  • Dave from Wheaton, IlDefinitely sounds like it was influenced by Thelma Houston's 'Don't leave me this way'.
