Lyrics
You can haunt any house by yourself
Be a man or a mouse by yourself
You can act like a king on a thrown
There are lots of things that you can do alone

But it takes two to tango two to tango
Two to really get the feeling of romance
Two to tango two to tango do the dance of love
You can sail on a ship by yourself

Take a nap or nip by yourself
You can get into debt on your own
There are lots of things that you can do alone
But it takes [unknown]

You can get very old by yourself
Catch a fish or a cold by yourself
Dig a ditch or strike it rich all by yourself
There are lots of things that you can do alone

But it takes...

You can fight like a champ by yourself
You can lick any stamp by yourself
You can be very brave on the phone
There are lots of things that you can do alone

But it takes [unknown]
It Takes two, I say two
Darling it always takes two
I'm with you
