Well, her brains they rattle and her bones they shake,
Oh! she’s a angel from the inner lake
Her brains they rattle and her bones they shake,
Oh! she’s a angel from the inner lake

Band: bruce:
Her brains they rattle and don’t dance with her elway
Her bones they shake, don’t dance with jake
All:
Oh! she’s a angel from the inner lake

Her brains they rattle and she give me all the lovin’
Her bones they shake, that a good man can take
Oh! she’s a angel from the inner lake

Sha na na na na-ah o-oh
Sha na na na na-ah o-oh
Sha na na na na-ah o-oh
Sha na na na na-ah o-oh
Thundercrack!
Baby’s back
This time she’ll tell me how she really feels
And bring me down to her lightning shack
You can watch my partner reeling
She moves up! she moves back!
Out on the floor there ain’t nobody cleaner
She does this thing she calls the "jump back jack"
She’s got the heart of a ballerina

Straight from the bronx, hung on the line.
She slips she slides she slops she bops, she bumps, she grinds
Even them dance hall hacks from the west side of the tracks
Move in close to catch her timing
She moves up! she moves back!
Out on the floor there ain’t nobody cleaner
She does this thing she calls the "jump back jack"
She’s got the heart of a ballerina

She ain’t no little girl, she ain’t got no curls
And in her brown little eyes an image
Round and round and round and round and round...
She whirls

My heart’s wood, she’s a carpenter
She’s an angel in the night what she does is all right.
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
’til the dawn!
Oh ’til the dawn

Thundercrack!
Baby’s back
This time she’ll tell me how she really feels
And bring me down to her lightning shack
You can watch my partner reeling
She moves up! she moves back!
Out on the floor there ain’t nobody cleaner
She does this thing she calls the "jump back jack"
She’s got the heart of a ballerina

She has parents! she has religion! she has sisters!
Round and round and round and round and round...
She whirls
My heart’s wood, she’s a carpenter
She’s an angel in the night what she does is all right.
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
Dance with me partner
All night (repeat)
