Oh Carol, don't let them steal your heart away
I'm going to learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Climb into my machine so we can groove on out
I know this swinging little joint where we can jump and shout
It's not too far back on the highway, not so long a ride
You park the car in the open, you can walk inside
A little cutie takes your hat and you can thank her ma'am
'Cause every time you make the scene you find the joint is jammed

Oh Carol, don't let them steal your heart away
I'm going to learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Now if you want to hear some music like the boys are playing
Hold tight pat your foot, don' t let it carry you away
Don't let the heat overcome you when they play so loud
The music intrigue you when they get a crowd
Well you can't dance, I know you would if you could
I've got my eyes on you, baby, 'cause you dance so good

Oh Carol, don't let them steal your heart away
I'm going to learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Oh Carol, don't let them steal your heart away
I''ve got to learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

Oh Carol
