Lyrics
I met her dancing to the Castle Rock,
I held her tight and danced around the clock
We rocked to romance to the Castle Rock,
She kissed me and I kissed my heart goodbye.
I felt like I was drifting 'cross the sky.
We rocked to heaven to the Castle Rock.
Music was soft and low, setting me all aglow,
Holding it to my heart, how could I dream we'd part.
Suddenly she was gone, leaving me dreaming on,
Now everytime they play the Castle Rock,
I'll take myself a walk around the block.
Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.
(Go get em, Harry [James], for old time's sake)
I'm mad at dancing to the Castle Rock,
I held her tight and danced around the clock.
We rocked to romance to the Castle Rock.
Now everytime they play the Castle Rock,
I'll take myself a walk around the block,
Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.
Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.
