Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba. My friends all said I'd never learn to dance In fact, they said I didn't stand a chance The dancin' contest, time to show them moves Then I found these magic shoes. Oh, shocked the crowd when sparks flew from my feet As I started groovin' with the beat Oh, people better watch your P's and Q's 'Cause I've got magic shoes.
A very good album that was slept on when released. They bring the goods, a must for collectors.
