Hey, pretty baby
Don't you think you might give me a chance
Get it on with me
Go down-town for some loving romance
And I know I ain't nothing
I ain't worth but a thin dime
But if you put your heart in my hands
I'm sure that I could change your mind

I want to boogie with you
Yeah, I want to boogie with you

Both agree
And that is that they both have a
Deep distrust for me
And your best friend Frankie
Well, I know, your best friend Frankie, he wants to see me sink
And I don't much blame him for that
He gets so useless after so few drinks, you know, baby

I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you

Well, I know your little baby sister
She thinks that I'm a flop
Well, I guess that you know that it's true
I spent more time at the bottom than the top
Tell your little sister
I know she wants to give me a whirl
But I don't have the time, baby
To wait till she's grown up, and she's a woman, not a girl

Don't you know, I want to boogie with you
Hey, I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you, yeah

Boogie with you
Down by the corner
We'll be able to, yeah
