VERSE 01: Oh, Hon’, tonight’s the night,/I hope you’re feeling right./There’s goin’ to be a dancing jubilee,/I want you to come along with me./Don’t mind your Sunday clothes./You took immense in those./But if you’ve got a pair of dancing shoes/That’s one thing that I know you’re goin’ to use.
CHORUS: Bring ‘em along, bring ‘em along,/You better bring along your dancing shoes/And come along with me,/Bring ‘em along, bring ‘em along,/You better bring along an extra pair,/We’ll do lots of dancing there,/I don’t care what else you wear/But the shoes must stand to wear and tear,/There’s goin’ to be a lot of rough and tumble goin’s on./We’ll never stop/Till Mister Rooster crows at break of dawn./Then dance right on,/Bring ‘em along, bring ‘em along,/You better bring along your dancing shoes,/And Hen; we’ll have some fun you better come along with me./Bring ‘em a- me.
VERSE 02: Don’t wear those high heeled pumps,/You know those skips and jumps/Are surely goin’ to get you if you do,/You’ll be going lame before you’re thru./We’d better dance our best./For it will be a test,/They’re goin’ to give a medal to the pair/Who do the finest fancy steppin’ there.
