"I Can't Dance" as written by Allan Sherman and Busch Lou,....
I can't dance
I can't dance
Besides, I'm two feet shorter than the girls are
All these dancing parties are just plain dumb
When they asked, I should have said, "I can't come"
There's a girl with braces,
Standing by the punch bowl and she's making funny faces
I guess she wants to dance

I can't dance
I can't dance
Besides I look so awful in these braces
If that boy wants me to dance, I'll just die
I'm so tall, and he's about three feet high
Ever since September,
I've been taking dancing lessons, now I can't remember
How the heck to dance

Pardon me
My name's Jeff
And I don't mind if you are tall and skinny
And those braces on your teeth,
They're real neat
Thank you for the compliment, Gee you're sweet
Your name is Carlotta
I met you last summer when we went to Camp Granada
We oughta try to dance

Right foot first
Left foot next
I think you're suposed to do it to the music
You don't really look so bad, just your ears
When do you take your braces off?
Four more years
By the time your teeth are ready,
I'll be two feet taller, and I'll ask you to go steady
Then we'll dance
