  • Ran away from the County Fair,

  • And thought he'd do some dancin' there.
  • He started jumpin' and skippin' and kickin',
  • He did a dance called the Funky Chicken,
  • He did the Polka, he did the Twist,
  • He bent himself into a pretzel like this.
  • He did the Dog and the Jitterbug,
  • He did the Jerk and the Bunny Hug.
  • He did the Waltz and the Boogaloo,
  • He did the Hokey-Pokey too.
  • He did the Bop and the Mashed Potata,
  • He did the Split and the See Ya Later.
  • And now he's down upon one knee,
  • Bowin' oh so charmingly,
  • And winkin' and smilin'--it's easy to see
  • Danny O'Dare wants to dance with me.
