Don't cry on my shoulder
For somebody else
While I'm dancing this dance with you

And oh, don't cry on my shoulder
For someone you knew
I've told you I am in love with you

Oh, you try to tell me that you love me, yet
How come while were dancing
Our eyes never met

Don't cry on my shoulder
For somebody else
While I'm dancing this dance with you

And oh pretty baby, don't cry on my shoulder
For somebody else
While I'm dancing this twist with you

Oh, pretty baby don't cry on my shoulder
About some guy you knew, I've told you, I've told you
At least I meant to tell you that I was in love with you

Ah, you, you try to tell me that you love me, yet
How come while were dancing
Our eyes never met

Don't cry on my shoulder
For somebody else
While I'm dancing this dance with you

Do it a one more time
While I'm dancing this dance with you, yeah
