Hot sun Beating Burning wal- around
down my feet king


[C]  [C]  [G]  [G]Hot sun    [F]   [G] b[G]eating down
[C]  [C]  [G]  [G]burning my feet just [Bb]walking a[C]round.
(Same thing:)

Hot sun making me sweat
'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet


Chorus: (same tune as verse)
-------

[C]I [C]ca[G]n'[G]t dance, I[F] ca[G]n'[G]t talk.
[C]Th[C]e [G]on[G]ly thing about me is the [Bb]way I [C]walk.

I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.

Verse 2:
--------


Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach.

She's got a body under that shirt,
but all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt.

'Cause, I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling.

checking... place... know

And [Bb]checking everything is in [F]place,
you never [C]know who's looking on.

Verse 3:
--------


Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues.

Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.

But I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling

And [Bb]checking everything is in [F]place
You never [C]know who's looking on
[Bb]  A perfect body [Eb]  with a perfect [F]face,  uhan.

End:
[----]                                     
Play chorus lots of time with loads of scat vocals...while
playing the "intro-riff"...

and singing:

"I won't dance, please don't ask me..."
