As I was walkin' down the street,
Down the street, down the street,
I met somebody who was mighty sweet,
Mighty fair to see.
I asked her would she like to have a talk,
Have a talk, make some talk,
All the fellows standin' on the walk
Wishin' they were me:
Mama, Mama let me dress up tonight,
Dress up tonight, dress up tonight,
I've got a secret, gonna 'fess up tonight
Gonna dance by the light of the moon.
Gonna dance with a dolly with a hole in her stockin'
While our knees keep aknockin' and our toes keep arockin'
Dance with a dolly with a hole in her stockin'
Dance by the light of the moon.

Mama, Mama put the cat out tonight.
Cat out tonight, cat out tonigh,.
Worked all day I'm gonna scat out tonight
And I won't be home until dawn.
Gaonna dace with a dolly with a hole in her stockin'
While our knees keep a knockin' and our toes keep a rockin'
Dance with a dolly with a hole in her stockin'
Dance by the light of the moon.
Gonna dance by the light of the moon,
Dance by the light of the moon,
By the light of the moon
