Listen

Lyrics

English

Come on, everybody! Let’s dance!

CHORUS
Dorothy
Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?
Dorothy
Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

Well, first you take your hands
And you put them on your hips
You sway from side to side
And let your backbone slip

CHORUS

Well, next you turn your head
You turn it from side to side
Everybody dancing!
Then you shake your hands
It's really out of sight

CHORUS (repeat)

Dorothy (¿Te Invito A Bailar?)

(¡Vamos todo mundo a bailar!)

Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así
Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así

Tus manos vas a poner, descansando en la cintura
Te mueves de lado a lado, que se vea tu soltura

Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así
Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así

Después mueves tu cabeza, mueve la de aqui para alla
(Que divertido!)
Luego sacude tus manos, ¡qué bello es bailar!

Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así
(Laaaa laaaaaaa!)
Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así
(Sigue bailando!)
Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así
(Laaa laaaaaa!)
Dorothy, Dorothy, Te invito bailar así

The Taiwanese Wiggles

Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?
Dorothy
Dorothy, would you like to dance with me?

好吧,首先你把手
然後你把它們放在你的臀部
你左右搖擺
讓你的脊椎滑落

CHORUS

好吧,接下來你轉過頭來
你把它從一邊轉到另一邊
然後你握手
真的看不下去了


CHORUS

Trivia

  • The back cover of the Wake Up Jeff! album added an unnecessary comma ("Dorothy, (Would You Like To Dance?)"). The booklet of that same album corrected this and every appearance of the song since has not included the comma.
  • According to a Powerhouse Museum news clip, the song was rehearsed live in early 1996.
  • This is the quickest song to receive a re-recording, with the original recording being released in 1996 and the re-recording being released in 1997.
  • The 1996 version of the song is played on the games The Wiggles' Musical Instruments, Missing Hats Game and Matching Instruments.
  • The 1997 instrumental track of this song that is played on The Wiggles in Disneyland, the Everybody Clap! Everybody Sing! documentary and A Wiggly Sing-Along Box Set has extra guitars throughout and extra keyboards at the beginning, as well as a cowbell during the chorus.
  • The song is played on the Dorothy The Dinosaur Kiddie Ride.
  • Like the Mandarin version of Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles! the Mandarin version of this song had the chorus remain in English
  • On Compliments of Brach's and The Wiggles, the song is titled as "Dorothy (Would You Like to Dance with Me?)".
  • Surprisingly, The Wiggles in Disneyland version of the song never appeared on Prime7, due to the special's runtime of 45 minutes.
