This is a song about true love, found. You know, when you find true love it's not something you can easily forget. I remember it vividly, like it was yesturday. I was playing music with this funky jug band at a local watering hole. When I first set foot in the place I was surprised to see, that with just the jukebox cranked up, the dance floor was full of dancers. But, among all the dancers there, she stood out. It was just as though a giant beacon of light was shining on her. I think it might've had something to do with the way she danced. You see, she danced as though she had no internal skeletal stucture. I don't know if you've ever seen this before or not. It's kind of like earthworms....on a hot plate, or a bowl full of jello.... on springs. I couldn't help myself I fell in love and I dubbed her the girl with the shimmy in her pants. I wrote this song about her. Like t' hear it? Here we go.

The Cute Little Girl With The Shimmy In Her Pants

I know a girl who loves to dance.
She likes to shake and shimmy her blouse and pants.
Oh how I'd like a chance at love and romance with her.

Every night at the cabaret,
I watch her swing and sway her blues away,
and I pray for the day that can be partners with her.

But every boy in town, has the same damn dream as me.
How do I stand a chance at love and romance,
with the cute little girl with the shimmy in her pants?

I've got to make my move, make it quick,
before I get the short end of the stick.
If I hesitate, I might lose.
It's time to shine my dancin' shoes.

I know a girl who loves to dance.
She likes to shake and shimmy her pots and pans.
Oh how I'd like a chance at love and romance with her.

Every night at the cabaret,
I like to swing and sway my blues away,
and I pray for the day that I can be partners with her.

But every single male, for miles around, they're all standin' in a big long line.
They're beggin' baby please, on bended knees, "Honey won't you be mine?"

But all those guys, they're too late.
Cuz tonight I pick her up at eight.
I got a date, with love and romance,
and the cute little girl with the shimmy in her pants.
I got a big date, I can't be late,
with the cute little girl with the shimmy at eight.


Ah, love!
