Put on that dress
I'm going out dancing
Starting off red
Gleam and sparkling he'll see me
Music play make me dreamy for dancing
Must be a way that I can dress to please him
It's hard to walk and the dress is not easy
I'm swinging over like a heavy loaded fruit tree
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
It's sad to see
Lonely or this lonely
Close up my eyes
Dreamy dreamy music make it be alright
Music play make it good for romancing
Must be a way I can dress to please him
Swing and sway everything will be alright
But he's feeling so down tight tonight
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
You pretty thing
My man says
But I bought you beautiful dresses
You pretty thing
My man says
But I bought you beautiful dresses
Filthy type your dress is filthy
I'm falling flat and my arms are empty
Get away better get it out of this room
A fallen woman in dancing costume
If you put it on x8
