Comb your hair and paint and powder
You act proud and I'll act prouder
You sing loud and I'll sing louder
Tonight we're settin' the woods on fire
You're my gal and I'm your feller
Dress up in your frock of yeller
I'll look swell but you'll look sweller
Settin' the woods on fire

We'll take in all the honky-tonks, tonight we're having fun
We'll show the folks a brand-new dance that never has been done

I don't care who thinks we're silly
You'll be daffy and I'll be dilly
We'll order up two bowls of chili
