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 nothin' but fun
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 nothin' I would rather do than dance with you
And we rolled, reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Well till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:43
And every time I spinned she spinned with me
And we reelin', reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 9:54
I said, " Dance ballerina girl, go go go!
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 10:05
Man, I didn't know if I was dead or alive
And I was rollin', reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:26
But I'm keep on dancing till I get my kicks
And we reeled, reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:28
I gotta get my kicks before it get too late
And we was reelin', reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch, it was 10:29
I had to hold her hand, she's still holdin' mine
And we reeled, reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch and to my surprise
I was dancin' with a woman that was twice my size
I was reelin', reelin' and a rockin'
I was reelin' and a rockin'
Rollin' till the break of dawn

Well I looked at my watch and it was time to go
The band leader said " We ain't playing no more"
And we reelin', reelin' and a rockin'
We was reelin' and a rockin'
Well till the break of dawn
