ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK
"My Wife The Dancer"
(Eddie Mascari / Erwin Wenzlaff)

I met a girl who told me she's a dancer
A prettier girl I've never seen before
I went to the theater to see her
What a shock when I opened up the door

She was dancing the bump, bump, bumpity-bump
The audience was going wild
She looked at me and threw me a kiss
As I came stumblin' down the aisle

With every bump, bump, bumpity-bump
My heart started bumping too
Now every night you see me in the front row seat
Cheering with the rest of them and stomping my feet
I knew I'd met a girl to make my life complete
With her bump, bump, bumpity-bump

I took her home to meet ma and pa
They said she was the girl for me
They wished us both a happy life
And that's when I made this gal my wife
When I get home each night after five
She got that radio on
She starts moving all around the kitchen floor
The neighbors peeking in are screaming more, more, more, more
They asked if I sold tickets at my front door
To watch her dance that bumpity-bump
Oh, yeah
To dance, dance, dance the bumpity-bump bump bump
