Lyrics

Early in the evening I get home from work
I wash my face and put on a clean shirt
I call my baby on the telephone
Cause when I go downtown, I never go alone
When I’m with her I could never be blue
She’s got a pretty red dress and dancing shoes
When she leans in close and whispers in my ear
She knows what I want to hear

She says hold me tight, dance a little closer
Hold me right, dance a little slower
Just relax and lay your head on my shoulder
We’ll dance the night away

Well I’m a pistol, I’m a son of a gun
I work like a dog in the Texas sun
A sweatin’ and a hurtin’ and a shovelin’ rock
But that’s just ‘til five o’clock
When the whistle blows I’m off like a rocket
Smile on my face and a jingle in my pocket
Cause I got a baby pretty as can be
And here’s what she says to me

She says hold me tight, dance a little closer
Hold me right, dance a little slower
Just relax and lay your head on my shoulder
We’ll dance the night away

Well I’d rather my baby than diamonds or gold
Cause I’ll never feel lonely and I’ll never feel old
Yeah I’ll be happy for the rest of my days
If she’ll pull me close and say

Hold me tight, dance a little closer
Hold me right, dance a little slower
Just relax and lay your head on my shoulder
We’ll dance the night away
