It was up at Mike's the other night,
Gather round, folks, while I give you all the lowdown.
Chewing on their fingernails;
Drinks were served six bits a throw,
Everybody's nerves were getting jumpy.
Men forgot all about their bill,
Everybody rolled their eyes,
Someone hollered, Music, lights and gin,
They had big, broad smiles on every face,
When he started in to step
He twitched and squirmed; it just was a dirty shame.
Women watched him with amaze,
He looked over in the corner,
And they sure did look kinda low.
Go over there and see what's the matter with them girls.
And he said, I've got just what you need:
And forget about everything
