LET'S SIT DOWN

Baby, I've got something to tell you
So hear me out, here's what I have to say...:


For month and month all that we've been a-doin' is a-dancin'
Ain't had the time to get in any romancin'
The closest that I get to you is when we do the switcheroo and pony
Baby, can't we stop for just a minute 'cause I'm gettin' kinda lonely

Baby, let's get some chewing gum and soda pop
Baby, I'm parked in the dark out in the parking lot
Baby, don't you think that may be we could walk around
And do the stroll out to the car and
Baby, sit down

Now, Chubby Checker*'s had us buying
Lots of records that have had us twisted
And though we've thought about it
We ain't had the time to work in any kissin'
Little Cesar and the Romeos have
Had us doin' the hully-gully
What's the use of doin' the watusi
When you want to lovie dovie

Baby let's get some chewing gum and soda pop
Baby, I'm parked in the dark out in the parking lot
Baby, we'll be back in a minute, but for now
Let's take a continental walk out to the car and
Baby, sit down
