If I could lindy like Melindy when she lindy hops,
She makes all cats in the ballroom stop;
Hmmm, just look at that style and grace,
How that gal keeps up that pace!

Now, if I could lindy like Melindy when she lindy hops,
She won't even stop if you call the cops!
Just look at the twinkle in her eye!
Ahh, how that dress quivers around her thigh!

Now, if I could lindy like Melindy when she lindy hops,
Makes all cats in the ballroom stop;
Look at him throw her out and bring her in!
Now, the way them cats dance is a sin!
