I was walkin' down the street,
And it was gettin' mighty late.
Well, the truth of the matter is,
This poor girl had been abandoned by her date.
When, from out of nowhere,
Came this music loud and clear.
Let me see, from over there?
(No, from over there.)
Over there?
(Yeah.)

Well, I open up the door,
And much to my surprise,
The girls were wearin' formals,
And the boys were wearin' ties.
And I feel that I should mention,
That the band was at attention.
They just stood there, oh, so neat,
While they played their swingin' beat.
So I grabbed this little boy,
Who came struttin' 'cross the room,
And I say, "What's that?"
And he say,
Sohisticated boom, boom.

It's been long overdue,
Sophisticated boom, boom.
We been needin' somethin' new,
Sophisticated boom, boom.


Now stand up straight and tall,
Like your back's against the wall.
Take two steps forward,
Now shake your hips
(Boom, boom.)

It's been long overdue,
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-eh, yeah.)

That's not very sophisticated./
/(Sophisticated boom, boom.)

We been needin' somethin' new,

I do think she's blowin' her cool.

[Spoken:]
Now stand up straight and tall,
Like your back's against the wall.
Take two steps forward,
Now shake your hips.
Boom, boom.
(Ooo-ooo, oo-oo.)
(Ooo-oo-oooo.)
[Fade.]
(Ooo-oo...)
