Mama loved to dance,

Went to a dance last Saturday night
looked across the room and saw a terrible sight
There was mama dressed up to the nines
dancing with a man who was older than time
They were twirling and swirling round and round
when all of a sudden, they both fell down
Mama's hat flew north, and her dress went south
everyone stopped and opened their mouth
The old man's shoe flew off and hit the wall
his pants came down, but that's not all
The music stopped; the crowd gathered round
they both lay there together upon the ground
In disbelief I stared and stood frozen by the door
Mama's voice rang out from across the floor
You silly old fool, can't you take no for an answer
I told you I'm not a stripper, I'm a dancer.
