I CAN SEE YOUR SMILING FACE IN A CROWD

LIKE A HEARTBEAT EVERY TIME YOU'RE AROUND

THE DRESS YOU WEAR SO TIGHT IS THE ONLY THING ON MY MIND

IT'S 9:14, SO DANCE WITH ME, SHEILA BABY


I CAN FEEL MY BODY IN YOUR BEDROOM EYES

BUT THE GIRL NEXT DOOR CREATES MY RESTLESS NIGHTS

MAYBE YOU TRY TO RESIST BUT IT'S PAINTED ON THE FINGERTIPS

IT'S 9:14, SO DANCE WITH ME, SHEILA BABY


SHE CAN HOLD HER OWN ON A BLACKTOP

YOU CAN FEEL THE HEAT, IT WON'T STOP STRINGING THE BOYS ALONG UNTIL THE END OF THE NIGHT


SHE CAN HOLD HER OWN ON A BLACKTOP

YOU CAN FEEL THE HEAT, IT WON'T STOP STRINGING THE BOYS ALONG UNTIL THE END OF THE NIGHT


AND THEN WHEN IT'S TIME TO GO

SHE SHUFFLES ON THE BOARDWALK SLOW

TAPPING HER FEET TO THE DRUM BEAT COUNTING TO FOUR


AND I CAN SEE YOUR SMILING FACE IN A CROWD

LIKE A HEARTBEAT EVERY TIME YOU'RE AROUND

HOW DO I MAKE MY STAND? I'M REACHING OUT MY HAND

IT'S 9:14, SO DANCE WITH ME, SHEILA BABY


IT'S 9:14, SO DANCE WITH ME, SHEILA BABY

YEAH IT'S 9:14, SO DANCE WITH ME, SHEILA BABY


SHEILA BABY
