Sometimes I will, then again I think I won't
Sometimes I will, then again I think I won't
Sometimes I do, then again I think I don't

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:21
We was at a rock'n'roll dance having nothing but fun

[Chorus]
And we rolled, reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:32
There's nothing I would rather do than dance with you

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:43
And everytime I spinned she would spin with me

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:54
I said, " Dance ballerina girl, go go go!"

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:05
Man, I didn't know if I was dead or alive

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:26
But I'm gonna keep on dancing toll I get my kicks

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:28
I gotta get my kicks before it get too late

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:29
I had to hold her hand, she was still holding mine

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch and to my surprise
I was dancing with a woman that was twice my size

[Chorus]

Well I looked at my watch and it was time to go
The bandleader said " We ain't playing no more "

[Chorus]
