"Louise" as written by and Jo/oakey Callis....
Louise, take it all back to town
Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around
But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy-coo
Just can't shake it like you used to do
Louise

Louise, you used to work so hard
No one could compare
Always used to build a house
They came from everywhere

Men would scream
The ladies faint
The childrens weren't allowed
No one on another bill could ever draw a crowd

That was a long time ago
How you keep it up, I just don't know

Louise, take it all back to town
Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around
But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy-coo
Just can't shake it like you used to do
Louise, Louise

Younger girls keep coming up, anxious for a chance
They've all been to college, got degrees in modern dance
Things keep getting rougher now
Where they once was slick
Old routines are getting tired
Tassels just don't stick

That was a long time ago
How you keep it up, I just don't know

Louise, take it all back in town
Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around
But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy-coo
Just can't shake it like you used to do
Louise, Louise

Louise

Oh, it's so very hard
Every day slips away
Away, away
