After watching "That Thing You Do!" a number of times, I decided it was high time I tried my hand at a little Mop-Top rock circa 1964 about a time I took my wife dancing at the old Lake Robbins Ballroom.


Sun Down on Saturday
Take those summer threads
Turn to ten and off around the bend

There's a place in old Lake Robbins and
The dancing never ends
You take my hand and spin me round again

Straighten up my tie
Got you by my side
Hold me in your eyes, I
I cannot deny
I've got this on my mind
Dancing all our lives

Just melt me in that smile
Make me come apart
Walk me down the aisle and take my heart

And if I should trip upon my words
It's no surprise at all
The way you knock me out, I'm sure to fall for you
