Well, I looked out on the dancefloor and what did I see?
(Yeah, what did you see?)
A pretty little girl as cute as she could be
(Yeah, is that what you see?)
I'm gonna walk on over and say hello
(Yeah, go-go-go)
I'm gonna walk on over and say hello
(Well, what are you waitin' for?)
Hello (hello) sweet baby doll
Would you like to dance with me?
Hello (hello) sweet baby doll
Would you like to dance with me?

Well, we rocked and we rolled and we had a ball
(Yeah, they rocked and they rolled)
Well, we rocked and we rolled and we had a ball
(Yeah, they rocked and they rolled)
I looked out on the dancefloor and what did I see
(Yeah, what do you see?)
Another little girl as cute as she could be
(Yeah, we see what you mean)
Well, she stepped back once and she moved my way
(Yeah, she moved your way)
She came a little closer then she heard me say
(What did you hear her say?)
Hello (hello) sweet baby doll
Would you like to dance with me?
Hello (hello) sweet baby doll
Would you like to dance with me?

Instead of a dance, would you take me home?
(Man, won't you take her home?)
She said, my daddy's gettin' mad and he's all alone
(My daddy is all alone)
Well, I got to her house and what did I see?
(Tell us, what did you see?)
A great big bruiser comin' after me
(A great big bruiser was he)
Well, I know he was her daddy, 'cause I heard him say
(What did you hear him say)
Look a-here boy, you better be on your way
(Boy, you better be on your way)

Goodbye (goodbye) sweet baby doll
I better be on my way
So long (so long) sweet baby doll
Your daddy won't let me stay
'Cause your daddy won't let me stay
'Cause your daddy won't let me stay
'Cause your daddy won't let me stay
Goodbye (goodbye), I'm gone (I'm gone)
So long (so long), I won't stay around here
Bye bye (bye bye), I'm gone (I'm gone)
Yeah-yeah (yeah-yeah), ooh man (ooh)
