Song Lyrics

Everybody says, "Sit down, sit down!"
Everybody says, "Sit down, sit down!"
Well I can't sit down no I can't sit down,
'Cause my feet are all full of dance around.

Chorus:
Bump deedle ump bump, bump a dee,
Ev'rybody bump a deedle dance with me.
Bump deedle ump bump, bump a dee,
Ev'rybody bump a deedle dance with me.

Everybody says, "Be good, be good."
Everybody says, "Be good, be good."
Well if they understood I'm as good as good,
For dancing all around is what I should.

(Chorus)

Everybody says, "What's wrong? What's wrong?"
Everybody says, "What's wrong? What's wrong?"
Well, there's nothing wrong when I sing my song,
But you'd better watch out if I'm quiet long.

(Chorus) (repeat)

Everybody bump a deedle dance with me
