Dreams come true
And if you get too far behind them
Someone else will find them

Lanterns of gold
Lanterns of blue
Twinkle in the shadows
While I dance with you

She's spinning like a top
Shimmying with that steady rock
Dipping up and down
And then she go 'round 'round and 'round

I'm sorry now, so won't you come on back?
Oh-oh-oh-oh, why you wanna break my heart now?
You know that we should never never part

You've gotta shake your hands all around and around the sky
And then you buzz around the floor
You can do it if you really try

Baby, my red dress in the cleaners
But my shift will steal the show
Baby, my red dress in the cleaners, child
But my shift will steal the show
Yes, it's fittin', child, it's fittin'
And it ain't the back that's cut too low

Old Grandpa just made eighty years old
Man, he's crazy about this rock 'n' roll

Good mornin', captain
Well, good mornin' to you, son

When the odds are sayin' you'll never win
That's when the grin should start

One can have a broken heart
Livin' in misery

Besides the coffee, they brought with 'em
A percolating kind of rhythm
That moves this old town upside down
Manhattan's gone Latin

You don't know how I feel
You'll never know how I feel
But when I needed you to come around
You always tried to put me down

Got myself a gal named Sue
Treats me really fine
Yes, she's my baby
And I love her all the time

While the bluebirds sing their magic song
We will love the summer long

You're readin' all them high-fashion magazines
The clothes you're wearin', girl, they're causin' public scenes

And if you'll tell me you're my one girl
You'll make whole life worth living
Just by giving
Your love to me

When deep down inside you know
She will never want you
No matter what you do

I would beg and steal (beg and steal)
Just to feel (just to feel)
Your heart (I want your heart)
Beating close to mine (so close to mine)

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two

You make my heart go giddyup
You set the world on fire
You are my one desire

Wear your hair just for him

Near the village
The quiet village

He's got me smilin' when I should be ashamed
Got me laughin' when my heart is in pain

You'd be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much

Loneliness is a cloak you wear
A deep shade of blue
Is always there


Go on, baby, do the boogaloo
Do anything you wanna do
Do it, baby, do that shing-a-ling
That Funky Broadway, everything

You could make a blind man see
You could make a crippled man walk
You could make the quietest man in the world talk
