There's a dance you ought to do,
Let me introduce to you,
Get a partner, then begin,
Hold whatever pose you're in,
It's a dance that you can dance
with your girl or wife;
Find a pose, then stop; position's everything in life!
You'll find there's no telling when
Dance will stop and start again,
Frozen, posin', on-j'mosin'!
Lozin', tosin', ten cents-a-dozin',
Whatta ya mean? Whatta-ya mean I'm speedin'?
I'm just gettin' ready to cut out!
Dance will start, stop again,
I'm liable to cut out, and start again!
Now you see, those cats are posin'!
Yeah! Now you see, I'm posin'!
