LYRICS: Dancing days are here again Summer evenings grow I got my flower I got my power I got a woman who knows I said it's alright You know it's alright I guess it's all in my heart You'll be my only My one and only Is that the way it should start? Crazy ways are evident in the way you're wearing your clothes Sippin' booze is precedent as the evening starts to glow You know it's alright I said it's alright You know it's all in my heart You'll be my only My one and only Is that the way it should start? Dig You told your mama I'd get you home But you didn't say that I got no car I saw a lion He was standing alone The tadpole in a jar You know it's alright I said it's alright I guess it's all in my heart, heart, heart You'll be my only My one and only Is that the way it should start? So, dancing days are here again As the summer evenings grow You are my flower You are my power You are my woman who knows I said it's alright You know it's alright You know it's all in my heart You'll be my only, yes My one and only, yes Is that the way it should start? I know it is now
