Remember when you held my hand
Walk talk in the name of love
Think it over, think it over
Why don't you dance with me
Just a limburger
Dance this mess around, 'round, 'round
They dance this mess around
Do the Shy Tuna
Do the Hip-o-crit
Hippy Shake, Hippy Shake
Hey now, don't that make you feel a whole lot better?
I say, don't that make you feel a whole lot better
I'm just askin'
Everybody goes to parties
They do all 16 dances
Do the Coo-ca-choo
Do the Dirty Dog
Ah-Hippy Hippy forward Hippy Hippy
It's time to do 'em right
What you say?
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Dance on over
Dance, dance, dance this mess around
Shake, shake-a-bake shake
Dance this mess around
