​Dig It

This song is by Nellie McKay and appears on the album Normal As Blueberry Pie: A Tribute to Doris Day (2009).

Oh, I can't dance
Yes you can, stop that
Oh, I really can't
Oh yes, you can
Come on, right left, right left
Just give it a try

Really you can teach me
Oh yeah, you got the legs for it
'Cause it seems to me
Oh, it seems to you
I said it seems to me
You said it seems to you

A such embarrassing situation
Calls for concentration
Do you dig me, Jack?
We dig you, Jack
Can you think of a plan?
We solid can

Can you sing and dance?
I'll take a chance
Are your boots on right?
I got 'em laced up tight

Is Miss Miller a killer
From a Spanish villa?
Is her dancing mellow?
Why, mellow as a cello
Then it seems to me obviously
You wanna go right into your Terpsichore

I never could do the conga
Could never get through the conga
But if you say do the conga
I ain't hep to that step
But I'll dig it

I never could see mazurkas
They're poison to me, mazurkas
But if it's to be mazurkas
I ain't hep to that step
But I'll dig it

When they invented the Charleston
I was a total flop, right
But say if you want to Charleston
I'll never stop
I'll dance till I drop

I never could dig the polka
The corniest jig, the polka
But if you say dig the polka
I ain't hep to that step
But I'll dig it

Alright
Oh there you go, there you go down
You can dance sugar
That's not so hard
What was that dance called?

I never could do the conga
Could never get through the conga
But if you say do the conga
I ain't hep to that step
But I'll dig it

I never could see mazurkas
They're poison to me, mazurkas
But if it's to be mazurkas
I ain't hep to that step
But I'll dig it

When they invented the Charleston
I was a total flop
But say if you want to Charleston
She'll never stop
She'll dance till I drop

I never could dig the polka
The corniest jig, the polka
But if you say dig the polka
I ain't hep to that step

She ain't hep to that step
I ain't hep to that step
She ain't hep to that step
She ain't hep to that step
