Lyrics I'VE GOT A STRANGE
PHILOSOPHY,
NOTHING YOUNG
APPEALS TO ME
I LIKE MY MEN
LIKE I LIKE MY WHISKEY,
AGED AND MELLOW.

SOME GIRLS
JUST CAN'T SEEM TO SEE
WHY THESE LITTLE YOUNG CATS
AIN'T MOVING ME
I LIKE MY MEN
LIKE I LIKE MY WHISKEY,
AGED AND MELLOW.

THERE IS NOTHING
GREENHORN CAN DO FOR ME,
BECAUSE MY OLDER DADDY
SUITS ME TO A TEE
I LIKE MY MEN
LIKE I LIKE MY WHISKEY,
AGED AND MELLOW.

NOW LISTEN YOUNGSTER,
BE ON YOUR WAY,
DON'T YOU COME BACK HERE
UNTIL A MUCH LATER DAY
I LIKE MY MEN
LIKE I LIKE MY WHISKEY,
AGED AND MELLOW.

JUNIOR MAY BE YOUNG
AND STRONGER,
BUT I'LL TAKE GRANDPA
BECAUSE HE'S HAD IT LONGER
I LIKE MY MEN
LIKE I LIKE MY WHISKEY,
AGED AND MELLOW.

Lyrics HEY BABY,
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO,
TO MAKE A HIT WITH YOU?

YOU GOTTA DANCE WITH ME HENRY
ALL RIGHT BABY
DANCE WITH ME HENRY
DON'T MEAN MAYBE
ROCK WITH ME HENRY
ANY OLD TIME
TALK TO ME HENRY
DON'T CHANGE MY MIND

DANCE WITH ME HENRY
YOU BETTER DANCE
WHILE THE MUSIC GOES ON
ROLL ON ROLL ON ROLL ON

WHILE THE CATS ARE BALLIN',
YOU BETTER STOP YOUR STALLIN'
IT'S INTERMISSION IN A MINUTE,
SO YOU BETTER GET WITH IT.

DANCE WITH ME HENRY,
YOU BETTER DANCE
WHILE THE MUSIC GOES ON.
ROLL ON ROLL ON ROLL ON

OOO OO-OO WEE
HENRY
YOU AIN'T MOVIN' ME.
YOU BETTER FEEL
THAT BOOGIE BEAT,
AND GET THE LEAD
OUT OF YOUR FEET.

YOU GOTTA DANCE WITH ME HENRY,
DANCE WITH ME HENRY,
ROCK WITH ME HENRY,
TALK TO ME HENRY,
DANCE WITH ME HENRY,
YOU BETTER DANCE
WHILE THE MUSIC GOES ON
ROLL ON ROLL ON ROLL ON

Lyrics IN EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART
THERE'S A BEAT FOR YOU.
ALTHOUGH WE'RE SO FAR APART
MY LOVE IS TRUE.
IN ALL MY CONVERSATION
YOU'RE MY INSPIRATION.
EVERYTHING I DO
I'LL DO FOR YOU.
IN EVERY BOAST OF MINE
THERE'S A BOAST OF YOU.
IN EVERY TOAST OF MINE
THERE'S A TOAST OF YOU.
ALL NIGHT LONG,
RIGHT OR WRONG,
I'LL KEEP DREAMING OF YOU.
IN EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART,
THERE'S A BEAT FOR YOU.
