Casey is an old man who wants to be a teen
He goes to all the dances and they call him cha-cha king
He cha-chaæ?¯ when the band is playin?rock and roll
He tries to keep in time but the beat leaves him cold.
Because heæ?¯ too pooped to pop, too old a soul
Hips gettin?weaker when he tries to do the stroll
And every time his feet get to go in one way
Here comes a new dance and itæ?¯ goin?to stray.
Chicks told Casey, æ?§ou better move man,
This is only a one night stand?br> Casey wasnæ?° in time but he was dancin?awhile
Till a cramp caught his leg and he had to change his style.
Casey finally learned to do the hoochie koo
This might have been fine back in '22
Now, Iæ?¦ gonna give you fellows just a little tip
If you wanna keep your girl youæ?? better get hip
Or, youæ?£l be too pooped to pop, too old a soul
You hips are gettin?weaker when youæ?£l try to do the stroll
And every time your feet gettin?to go in one way
Here comes a new dance youæ?£l be left to stray.
