    Correction Notes:

    Oh, what a crazy party all the gang's here, too
    The beat is really jumping like a kangaroo
    I'm full of cherry soda and potato chips
    But now I want to get a taste of your sweet lips

    So, dim, dim the lights !! Dim, dim the lights
    Dim, dim the lights !! Dim, dim the lights
    Turn down the lights
    I want some atmosphere !!
    The furniture is bouncing round the room with glee
    And rocking like a boat upon a stormy sea
    But, dig the crazy pockets on the pile tonight
    But still I haven't had a chance to hold you tight

    Look at Annie's earrings bouncing off her backs
    Look at Suzie kissing and a-hugging Jack
    Looking Nancy dancing in her stocking feet
    We're all going crazy with the mambo beat !!!
    But, everybody's really having lots of fun
    But, honey as for me the night has just begun
    Cause now I want to tell you things and hold you tight
    But, how can I do it with the room so bright ? Writer/s: Beverly Ross, Julius Dixon
