Charlie Must Dance

Purchase on  Lonesome Desert Crawl - Rex Hotel  and all online music stores

We’re gonna wind on down
right here tonight
‘cause when Charlie can’t dance
Charlie don’t feel right

Rosie’s got moves
and a rose in her hair
but if Charlie can’t dance
she ain’t going nowhere

And Grace is real loose
she’s shaking’ like live wire
but Charlie can’t dance
until she lights his fire

Charlie cuts the rug
Charlie leads the pack
you better pray you don’t find
Charlie’s knife in your back

Well I’ve got Rum
Bacardi 151
but if Charlie can’t dance
we won’t have any fun…

So I strolled outside
on a pillow if winds
once you go out
you can’t go back in
and here she comes
she walking down the street
she’s singing do wah diddy
diddy dum diddy dee
Here she comes
she’s walking by my side
she’s singing
do wah diddy didy dum diddy die

There’s a song that Charlie sings
about love and bliss
there’s a song that Charlie sings
and it goes like this
there’s a song that Charlie sings
about life out west
there’s a song that Charlie sings
and it goes like this

We’re gonna wind on down
right here tonight
‘cause when Charlie can’t dance
Charlie don’t feel right
