One, two, three, four!

WELL, SHE WAS JUST SEVENTEEN,
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
AND THE WAY SHE LOOKED WAS WAY BEYOND COMPARE.
OH, HOW COULD I DANCE WITH ANOTHER, OOH,
WHEN I SAW HER STANDING THERE.

WELL, SHE LOOKED AT ME,
YEAH, AND I, I COULD SEE
THAT BEFORE TOO LONG I´D FALL IN LOVE WITH HER.
OH, SHE WOULDN'T DANCE WITH ANOTHER, OOH,
WHEN I SAW HER STANDING THERE.

WELL, MY HEART WENT BOOM,
WHEN I CROSSED THAT ROOM,
AND I HELD HER HAND IN MINE.

OH, WE DANCED THROUGH THE NIGHT,
AND WE HELD EACH OTHER TIGHT,
AND BEFORE TOO LONG I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER.
OH, I´LL NEVER DANCE WITH ANOTHER, OOH,
SINCE I SAW HER STANDING THERE.

WHOA!

WELL, MY HEART WENT BOOM,
WHEN I CROSSED THAT ROOM,
AND I HELD HER HAND IN MINE.

WOH, WE DANCED THROUGH THE NIGHT,
AND WE HELD EACH OTHER TIGHT,
AND BEFORE TOO LONG I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER, YEAH.
NOW I´LL NEVER DANCE WITH ANOTHER, OOH,
WHEN I SAW HER STANDING THERE,
OH WELL, WELL, SINCE I SAW HER STANDING THERE,
WELL, SINCE I SAW HER STANDING THERE.
