Dum-de-dum …

Are you ready for a real good time my love

Are you ready for a really good treat

There’ll be so much dancin’, singin’

Huh, Are you the girl fallin’ into me

So, don’t be messing around, don’t be messing around

So, don’t be messing around, don’t be messing around

 

Now we started [da-be-di-da unintelligible]

We can say this little angel could

I’ll be so proud if you’d let me know you girl

Let me love you for a little a while, my sweet

 

So, don’t be messing around, don’t be messing around

So, don’t be messing around, don’t be messing around

 

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

 

Now she’s started to bring a problem to the beat

I said let’s groove out on the plane

She said to keep your mind on dancin’

Won’t be no romancin’

No, No, don’t mess with me, are we clear

 

Don’t be no messing

So, don’t be messing around

So, don’t be messing around

Don’t be messing around

 

BRIDGE:  Da-na-na-na-na …

Pa-pa-ra-pa-ra …

[Ad libbing beats and sounds]

 

So, don’t be messing around

So, don’t be messing around

Don’t be messing around

 

[Ad libbing words and beats]

 

BASS:  Dum-dum-da-de-de-rom, da-da-da
