Casey is an old man who wants to be a teen
He goes to all the dances and they call him cha-cha king
He cha-chas when the band is playin?rock and roll
He tries to keep in time but the beat leaves him cold.
Because hes too pooped to pop, too old a soul
Hips gettin?weaker when he tries to do the stroll
And every time his feet get to go in one way
Here comes a new dance and its goin?to stray.

Chicks told Casey, You better move man,
This is only a one night stand?br> Casey wasnt in time but he was dancin?awhile
Till a cramp caught his leg and he had to change his style.
2x Chorus

Casey finally learned to do the hoochie koo
This might have been fine back in '22
Now, Im gonna give you fellows just a little tip
If you wanna keep your girl youd better get hip
Or, youll be too pooped to pop, too old a soul
You hips are gettin?weaker when youll try to do the stroll
And every time your feet gettin?to go in one way
Here comes a new dance youll be left to stray.
