"I'm Dancing in the Show Tonight" as written by and Michael Melchiondo....
Are my lemons tied? Is my hair in place?
Have I got a cute expression on my face?
Are my shoes all shined?
I try to keep in line when I'm dancing in the show tonight

Does my shuffle step really look so good?
Am I doing it the way you think I should?
Would it be amiss if I blew a kiss
When I'm dancing in the show tonight?

Showtime now is getting nearer and I'm getting scared
Wish I could see in the mirror if I'm all prepared

First you take a step then you point your toe
Hope I know it like I did a week ago
Am I standing straight?
I can hardly wait till I'm dancing in the show tonight

Showtime now is getting nearer and I'm getting scared
Wish I could see in the mirror if I'm all prepared

First you take a step then you point your toe
Hope I know it like I did a week ago
Am I standing straight?
I can hardly wait till I'm dancing in the show tonight

    General CommentThe Mollusk sleeve notes say that this tune was stolen outright from "Are My Ears On Straight", which I believe is by Gayla Peevey. It's a song about a doll.

    "Are My Ears On Straight, Is my nose in place
    Have I got a cute expression on my face?
    Are my blue eyes bright, Do I look all right?
    To be taken home Christmas Day?"

    General CommentI'm pretty it's "Are my ribbons tied?" not lemons.
