Gary "u.S." Bonds — Dear Lady Twist lyrics

(Get up from your chair)
(Get up from your chair)

Darling, may I have
The pleasure of having
This next Twist with you?
“I don’t know how to Twist”
You don’t know how to Twist!
No, well, let me tell you!

Well now, there's a new dance
That's known as the Twist
It's really not new
It's something you've missed

But there's a new dance
That's known as the Twist
It's really not new
It's something you've missed

Dear lady (Get up from your chair)
Dear, dear lady (Get up from your chair)

Well, now, doctors agree
So I've been told
Do the Twist and
You'll never grow old

Well, one night I happened
On a go-go dance
Believing I'd find
Me some romance

And this old lady I happened to see
I said, come on, baby
Do the Twist with me

Dear lady (Get up from your chair)
Oh, dear lady (Get up from your chair)

Well, now, doctors agree
So I've been told
Do the Twist and
You'll never grow old

(Sax Solo)

Get up and do the Twist now
Yeah, oh, yeah
Come on pretty, baby
Come on and do the Twist now

Well, I said, I'd love to
Dance from now until dawn
She said, “Thank you, baby
But I'm almost gone”

I said, now the rhythm
Is getting real sweet
This is no time to
Slow up your feet

Dear lady (Get up from your chair)
Dear, dear lady (Get up from your chair)

Well, now, doctors agree
So I've been told
Do the Twist and
You'll never grow old

You gotta do the Twist
(Get up from your chair)
You gotta do the Twist
(Get up from your chair)
Come on and get up
(Get up from your chair)
Come on pretty baby and get up
Come on and do the Twist
Come on get up and Twist
Do the Twist now, baby
You gotta do the Twist
Yeah, come on
Do the Twist with me, come on….
