(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Hey-ah-ay-ay
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Oh, baby
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Hey-ah-ay-ay
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)

You can have this dance with me
You can hold my hand and
Whisper in my ear sweet words that I love to hear

(Whisper sweet words in my ear) Oh, baby
Don't be shy (don't be shy)
Just take your time (just take your time)
I'd like to get to know you (like to get to know you)
I'd like to make you mine (like to make you mine)

I've been waiting, standing here so patiently
For you to come over and have this dance with me

And my number is Beechwood 4-5789
You can call me up and have a date any old time

(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Hey-ah-ay-ay
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Oh, baby
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)
Hey-ah-ay-ay
(La, La. La, La, La, La, La)

Don't be shy (don't be shy)
Just take your time (just take your time)
I'd like to get to know you (like to get to know you)
I'd like to make you mine (like to make you mine)

Beechwood 4-5789
You can call me up and have a date any old time

And my number is Beechwood 4-5789
You can call me up and have a date any old time

Beechwood 4-5789
You can call me up and have a date any old time
