The Down-To-Here and Up-To-There Round Dance
The Down-to-There and Up-to-Here Round Dance
I don't like your girlfriend and her high-heeled shoes
When you dance right past it gives me the blues
You have the sweetest step in double time
But how can I tell you when you're so occupied.
I don't like your boyfriend and his white man ways
When you hold him close inside your shawl it makes me crazed.
I like the way you step so high beside me
How can I tell you when you don't talk to me.
"If you come close to me honey hey yah
I will have to confess
how much I love you hey yah ha."
