"The Harlem Tango" as written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin....
Well, if you've never seen The Harlem Tango
You know that you ain't seen
You ain't seen nothin' yet
Well, the things they do
To The Harlem Tango
They get The Twist--look just like a minuet

It's a-gonna kill you
It's a-gonna thrill you, child
It's a-gonna chill you
You'll never get your fill
It's gonna surprise you
It's gonna hypnotize you
It's gonna tranquilize
Without the aid of a pill

Well, the people from downtown
Know that they go uptown
And on the intermission
Just fly
Fly away
Well, the people from downtown
They're goin' uptown
And they don't go downtown
Until the break of day

It's a-gonna kill you
It's a-gonna thrill you, child
It's a-gonna chill you
You'll never get your fill
It's gonna surprise you
It's gonna hypnotize you
It's gonna tranquilize
Without the aid of a pill
