The Guess Who – Dancin' Fool lyrics

It was a Saturday night without a whole lot shakin'
Ooh my ooh my I was bored.
I had my best duds on it was a chance worth takin'
Somehow I was still ignored.

Been too long since I been shy and lonely
Ooh, but that's okay
Need some gal to be my one and only,

I got a wink and a smile from a flashy filly,
Ooh my ooh my she looked grand.
She said "I like your style now don't go actin' silly"
Ooh my ooh she held my hand.

Never thought that I could shake and grove it
Now I'm a Dancin' Fool
Dug my feet 'cause they could really move it

She got the message across and me and her got kissin'
Ooh my ooh my havin' fun
I know that this is the thing that I been really missin'
One more dance has just begun

No more time for feelin' shy and lonely
Now I'm a Dancin' Fool.
Found some gal to be my one and only
Ooh I'm a Dancin' Fool.

Been too long since I been shy and lonely
Now I'm a Dancin' Fool (I'm a dancin' fool I'm a dancer)
