“Don’t Do It” Lyrics

Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why won’t you dance with me?

Hey, you do it with Billy out on the floor
When the band starts playin’, now ya ask for more
You do it with everybody you see
Why won’t you do it with me?

Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why won’t you dance with me now?

Don’t want a house in the country
With lots of curtains and frills
Don’t want a house in the mountains
Keep the shack up in the hills
Ow!

Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why won’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why won’t you dance with me?
Ow!

[break]

Do it with Billy out on the floor
The band starts playin’, now ya ask for more
You do it with everybody you see
Why won’t you do it with me? Oh!

Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why won’t you dance with me now?
Ahh do it!

Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
Don’t do it, why don’t you do it?
