Song Lyrics

Dorothy: Come on, everybody, let's dance!

Greg: Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Well, first you take your hands

And you put them on your hips.

You sway from side to side

And let your back bones slip.

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Next you turn your head.

You turn it from side to side.

Dorothy: This is fun!

Greg: Then you shake your hands.

It's really out of sight.

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Dorothy, Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?
