The groove is in the eye of the beholder.


You don't even know how to do the watusi
You can't dance the boogaloo
When the boys on your street want to move their feet
Then don't come runnin' to you

Your idea of the früg is like a softshoe routine
A throwback to the golden age of the silverscreen

But you can
Shake it like a polaroid picture
Work it like a Babylon sister
You ain't got nothin' to prove
You put your heart into the groove
Oh-oh-oh baby
I like the way you move

You almost got the hang of the fandango
'Til your feet got in the way
You're still mystified by the electric slide
And you can't spell YMCA

Your partner's just a simple victim of circumstance
You do the cha cha cha like interpretive dance


You do the rumba when everybody's rockin'
Then the band plays a charleston -
You're poppin and lockin

I've never been the kind of guy to criticize
Everybody's got their faults
But when the boys in the band go into a gentle tango
You proudly swing into a waltz

When they do the hokey pokey you just shake it all about
You mix the robot with the worm and turn it inside out
