The Animals – Mess Around lyrics

Now there's a dance I can see that the kids all do
It's called "the Mess Around", you can mess around too
Come on mess around, yeah it's Mess Around
You do the Mess Around, everybody do the Mess Around

Now you see that chick with that diamond ring
She knows how to shake that thing
She can mess around, yeah she can mess around
She do the Mess Around, everybody do the Mess Around

Come on baby, let's mess child, yeah!
Ah it's nice, baby, come on!

Now there's a dance that Ray Charles revived
You can do it, it will keep you alive
He does the Mess Around, yeah he does the Mess Around
Come on and mess around, everybody do the Mess Around

Now you see that gal with the red dress on
She'll do the rock and roll, baby all night long
That's the Mess Around, yes It's Mess around
You do the Mess Around, everybody do the Mess Around

Oh come on and mess baby, yeah you can mess, baby
Oh now you can mess around, yeah yeah you can mess around
Live down, live down to the Mess Around
Everybody do the Mess Around
