    (One, two, three)

    Hey baby won't you take a chance?
    Say that you'll let me have this dance

    Well, let's dance, well, let's dance
    We'll do the twist, the stomp, the mashed potato too
    Any old dance that you wanna do
    But let's dance, well let's dance

    Hey, baby, yeah, you thrill me so
    Hold me tight, don't you let me go

    But let's dance, well let's dance
    We'll do the twist, the stomp, the mashed potato too
    Any old dance that you wanna do
    But let's dance, well let's dance

    Ok, wail now, oh, yeah

    Hey, baby, if you're all alone
    Maybe you'll let me walk you home

    But let's dance, well let's dance
    We'll do the twist, the stomp, the mashed potato too
    Any old dance that you wanna do
    But let's dance, well let's dance

    Hey, baby, things are swingin' right
    Yes, I know that this is the night

    Well, let's dance, well, let's dance
    We'll do the twist, the stomp, the mashed potato too
    Any old dance that you wanna do
    But let's dance, well let's dance

    But let's dance
    But let's dance
    But let's danceWriter/s: JIM LEE
