Hey you 
I'm dancin' with your girl 
Her head is in a whirl 
She don't know who to turn to 
All right

But she could soon be mine 
And I could soon be hers too 
One night 
Soon if I'm lucky gonna get that girl 
I'm gonna make her mine 

He sits there drinkin' gin and 
She sits there drinkin' beer like me 
He's timing every move but 
She's only killing time like me

But I tread carefully 
It could be a case of right place right time 

Hey you 
I'm dancin' with your girl 
Her head is in a whirl 
She don't know who to turn to 
All right 
I'll leave her just this time 
But she could soon be mine 
And I could soon be hers too 
One night 
Soon if I'm lucky gonna get that girl 
I'm gonna make her mine
