There's nothing else I'd rather do
Than to sit around and talk to you
And reminisce about a simpler time
The music that we made
Was simple but it stayed
In my memory and
On my mind

Dancin' on daddy's shoes
Dancin' all around the room
Rollin' the rug up kickin' our heels up
Dancin' away the blues
Sister would clap along
Everyone would sing a song
Playin' homemade music dancin' on daddy's shoes

There's something 'bout this musty room
That makes me reel
Makes me swoon
That strange perfume is one of a kind
The rhythm takes me back
When I hear that razzmatazz
There's no nicer feeling that I can find

Dancin' on daddy's shoes
Memories you'll never loose
Dancin' away the blues

Sentimental memories
Dancin' on daddy' shoes

Dancin' on daddy' shoes

Dancin' on daddy's shoes
Dancin' all around the room
Rollin' the rug up kickin' our heels up
Dancin' away the blues
Sister would clap along
Everyone would sing a song
Playin' homemade music dancin' on daddy's shoes

Oh, dancin' on daddy's shoes
