Song Lyrics

Oh, I love to have a dance with Dorothy
Oh, I love to have a dance with Dot
We dance to all kinds of music
We love to dance the Romp Bomp-a-Stomp
We dance in the town and the country
Where the atmosphere is great
We love to have a dance with Dorothy
‘Cause Dorothy’s our mate

Well, I love to have a dance with Wags the Dog
I love to have a dance with Wags
He loves to dance the tango,
And he carries his bone in a big brown bag
We dance in the town and the country,
Where the atmosphere is great
We love to have a dance with Wags the Dog,
‘Cause Wags is our mate

Now here comes Henry the Octopus
He always loves to dance
He twirls and spins and flourishes
He dances in his eight legged pants
We dance in the town and the country
Where the atmosphere is great
We love to have a dance with Henry,
‘Cause Henry's our mate

Here comes Captain Feathersword
Here comes our pirate friend
He dances jigs and hornpipes
He keeps dancing ‘till the end
We dance in the town and the country
Where the atmosphere is great
We love to have a dance with the Captain
‘Cause the Captain's our mate

Well, we love to have a dance with Dusty
Well, we love to have a dance with Slim
He can do all kinds of dances
And nobody dances better than him
He’ll dance in the town and the country,
Where the atmosphere is great
We love to have a dance with Dusty!
Slim Dusty’s our mate

It's time to dance together
‘Cause dancing’s so much fun
You can dance anywhere you like
There’s something here for everyone
We dance in the town and the country,
Where the atmosphere is great
Oh, let's all dance together
Because we’re all good mates
