Hot sun beating down
Burning my feet just walking around
Hot sun makin' me sweat
Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet

I can't dance
I can't talk
Only thing about me is the way I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything

Blue jeans sittin' on the beach
Her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach
Mhm, she's got a body under that shirt
But all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt

'Cause I can't dance
I can't talk
Only thing about me is the way I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin'

Oh and checking everything is in place
You never know who's lookin' on

Young punk spillin' beer on my shoes
Fat guy's talkin' to me tryin' to steal my blues
Thick smoke, see her smiling through
I never thought so much could happen just shootin' pool

But I can't dance
I can't talk
The only thing about me is the way that I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin'

Oh and checking everything is in place
You never know who's looking on
A perfect body with a perfect face
Mhm

No, I can't dance
I can't talk
The only thing about me is the way I walk
No, I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin' everything

No, I can't walk
No, I can't dance
No, no, no, I can't dance
No, I said, I can't sing
